The Penguins today signed forward Craig Adams to a two-year, $1.35 million contract that runs through the 2012-13 season.
Adams, 34, would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency if not re-signed by July 1.
A physical fourth-liner and penalty-killer, Adams was claimed off waivers by the Penguins in March 2009 and was part of the Penguins' Stanley Cup team that spring.
He had four goals, 15 points in 80 games in 2010-11.
