PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired another forward via free agency.
According to the Penguins’ official website, Matt D’Agostini has agreed to a one-year deal worth $550,000.
Last season, the 26-year-old forward had three goals and three assists, while splitting time between the St. Louis Blues and New Jersey Devils.
D’Agostini was drafted in the sixth round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.
In 264 career games, he has 47 goals and 48 assists.
The Penguins are still right up against the $64.3 million salary cap. They have yet to come to terms with restricted free agents Dustin Jeffrey and Robert Bortuzzo as well.
The good news, is that General Manager Ray Shero has plenty of time to make any final adjustments to the roster.
Last week, the Penguins signed free agent defenseman Rob Scuderi to a four-year deal.
