The Penguins announced this morning that they have signed left winger Chris Kunitz to a two-year contract extension. The deal runs through the 2013-14 season and is worth $3.725 million a season.

Kunitz, 32, has been a top-line winger for the team -- often with Sidney Crosby -- with a blend of offense and physical play. He was acquired from Anaheim in a February 2009 trade and was a member of the Penguins Stanley Cup team that season.

Kunitz has one assist in four games this season. Overall with the Penguins, in 140 regular-season games, he has 43 goals, 99 points, with 12 power play goals, two shorthanded goals and a plus-minus rating of plus-25. He has six goals, 26 points in 43 postseason contests.
