Penguins sign Megna to two-way deal

The Penguins have re-signed winger Jayson Megna and defenseman Philip Samuelsson, who were both restricted free agent, to a one-year, two-way contracts.

Megna's contract calls for $874,125 at the NHL level. Samuelsson's, $550,000.

Megna, 24, had five goals, four assists in his first 36 NHL games last season, and also dressed for two playoff games. He was originally signed by the Penguins as an undrafted player out of the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

Samuelsson, 22, played in his first five NHL games last season. He was a second-round pick by the Penguins at the 2009 draft and is the son of former Penguins defensenman Ulf Samuelsson.
