Forward Craig Adams took a pay cut to re-sign with the Penguins today.

He got a two-year deal that will pay him $550,000 each season, down from the $600,000 he earned in 2008-09.

Adams was claimed off waivers from Chicago March 4, and played on the Penguins' fourth line during the stretch drive and playoffs. He also killed penalties.

Adams, who would have been an unrestricted free agent Wednesday if he hadn't been re-signed, had three goals and two assists in 24 playoff games.
