The Penguins, further adding depth at forward, today signed Jason Williams to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000 at the NHL level.
They also signed defenseman Scott Harrington, their second-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft.
Williams, 30, has 93 goals, 225 points in 447 career NHL games over the past 10 seasons, with occasional stints in the minor leagues. He had two goals, five points in 27 games with Dallas last season after spending the first half of the season in the American Hockey League.
Harrington, 18, who participated earlier this month in the club's development camp, signed a three-year, entry-level contract. He will spend the 2011-12 season back in junior hockey, with London of the Ontario Hockey League, so the contract will kick in when he turns pro.
