Share with others:
The Penguins have signed a handful of players and lost another.
The team signed minor-league goalie Jeff Zatkoff to a two-year contract.
The deal, which was announced by agent Alex Schall, is worth $525,000 if Zatkoff plays in the NHL and $105,000 if he is in the minors.
Zatkoff was 21-17-1, with 2.49 goals-against average and .920 save percentage in 44 games with Los Angeles' American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester in 2011-12.
The Penguins also have signed free-agent defenseman Dylan Reese, an Upper St. Clair native, to a one-year contract.
The deal will pay Reese $600,000 if he plays in the NHL, a reduced salary if he's in the minors.
Reese, 27, spent the past three seasons in the New York Islanders' organization. He had one goal and six assists in 28 games on Long Island in 2011-12.
The Penguins have re-signed enforcer Steve MacIntyre. The agreement is a two-year, two-way contract worth $625,000 if he plays in the NHL and less when he's in the minors.
Also, one rugged winger was signed and another was lost. The Penguins gave left winger Tanner Glass, late of Winnipeg, a two-year contract with an average annual salary of $1.1 million.
Glass, 28, had 5 goals, 11 assists in 78 games with the Jets last season.
That deal was finalized at around the same time ex-Penguin Arron Asham was signing a two-year deal with the New York Rangers.
Going to New York means Asham will have played for all five Atlantic Division teams.
