Penguins sign Mike Comrie
PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Mike Comrie to a $500,000, one-year contract, giving them a proven scorer who might be capable of playing on one of their top three lines.
The Penguins, looking for affordable scoring help because they have little salary cap space, signed forward Arron Asham to a $700,000, one-year contract two weeks ago.
Comrie has scored 20 or more goals five times during nine NHL seasons with Edmonton, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Ottawa and the New York Islanders. He has not scored more than 13 goals since 2007-08.
Comrie will join the Penguins several months after marrying actress Hilary Duff.
