The Penguins signed Justin Schultz to a one-year deal worth $1.4 million on July 13th.
Schultz, 26, was stuck on a bad Edmonton team for three and a half years, before being traded to Pittsburgh at last year’s trade deadline. He enjoyed success with the Penguins, picking up eight points (1G / 7A) in 18 regular season games and four assists in 15 playoff games, en route to winning the Stanley Cup. Schultz’s $1.4 million dollar contract is a pay-cut from his previous $3.9M AAV contract, but he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh.
The Penguins signed Garrett Wilson to a one-year, two-way deal.
Wilson, 25, split his 2015-16 season between the AHL and NHL. Wilson, a former fourth round pick (107 overall in 2009), had no points in 29 games with the Panthers despite posting 20 points (7G / 13A) in 37 games with Portland (AHL). Look for him to start the 2016-17 season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
The Penguins signed Stuart Percy to a one-year, two-way deal worth $575K.
Percy, 23, was a first round pick (25th overall) in 2011 but was not qualified by the Maple Leafs, so he signed in Pittsburgh. He has only appeared in 12 career NHL games, but has enjoyed a solid AHL career to this point. He had 24 points (4G / 20A) in 58 games with the Marlies last year and will be with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to start 2016-17.
The Penguins have signed Chad Ruhwedel to a one-year deal worth $575K.
Ruhwedel, 26, appeared in just one NHL game last year, spending the year with Rochester (AHL), collecting 26 points (10G / 16A) in 59 games. Ruhwedel has just two assists in 33 career NHL games. Expect him to start the 2016-17 season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).
