The Penguins today signed right winger Tim Wallace to a two-year NHL entry level contract.

Wallace, 22, is a familiar face. After completing his college career at Notre Dame, he joined the Penguins after an amateur tryout last year and participated in rookie camp and, briefly, regular training camp.

He then split his first pro season between the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he had 14 points in 32 games, and its lower-level East Coast Hockey League team in Wheeling, where he had 17 points in 19 games.

Wallace, a 6-foot-1, 205-pound native of Anchorage, Alaska, set a Notre Dame record by playing in 153 consecutive games over his four seasons. He had 59 points over that stretch.

He is the second undrafted player signed in the past week as the Penguins add depth to their organization. They signed defenseman Jonathan D'Aversa on Friday.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
