PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins have brought back an integral “piece” of their 2009 Stanley Cup championship team.
According to the Penguins’ official website, the team agreed to terms with 34-year-old unrestricted free agent defenseman Rob Scuderi on a four-year deal. The average annual value of the deal is $3.375 million.
Scuderi’s play in the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs is not lost on Penguins fans.
Perhaps the most notable moment was his kick saves in the crease behind Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals with the Penguins clinging to a 2-1 lead late in the third period.
Following the 2009 season, Scuderi joined up with the Los Angeles Kings via free agency. During his four-year tenure in Los Angeles, Scuderi helped the Kings capture their first Stanley Cup in 2012.
