The Penguins today signed veteran forward Mike Comrie to a $500,000, one-year contract, potentially adding some scoring punch.
Comrie, 29, has played with Edmonton, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Ottawa and the New York Islanders over nine NHL seasons, with 167 goals and 359 points in 568 games. He is a five-time 20-goal scorer and a two-time 30-goal scorer, although he has not had more than 13 since he scored 21 in 2007-08.
He also is known for marrying actress Hilary Duff this summer.
Comrie, whose uncle Fred Comrie was drafted by the Penguins in 1973 in the eighth round but never played here, has represented Canada in three World Championships and helped his country earn a gold medal in 2003.
