Calen Addison believes his game will fit in well with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Addison was selected by the Penguins with the 53rd overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. He's a defenseman with speed and offensive skills. "I play a similar game to the style the Penguins play," Addison said. "So I mean, that [drafting him] is a pretty good compliment coming from this organization. They picked me for a reason. I'm just going to do what I do and just have fun with it out there." While his offensive game is one of his biggest strengths, he does recognize that he needs to improve defensively if he is to succeed at the NHL level. He's expected to get more time to develop before taking the leap.

Andrey Pedan has officially signed with the KHL's Ak Bars Kazan.

Matt Cullen didn't expect the Pittsburgh Penguins to be interested in him this summer.

"Jim said when he called, ‘You were probably expecting my call,'" Cullen said, referring to Penguins GM Jim Rutherford. "I said, ‘Well, I wasn’t, because I saw you had [signed Sheahan].'" Pittsburgh inked Cullen to a one-year, $650,000 contract. He'll serve as a veteran leader and a strong presence on the fourth line. This is his second stint with the Penguins after he won the Cup with them in 2016 and 2017.

The Penguins signed goaltender John Muse to a one-year, two-way contract.

The 29-year-old can earn $6500,000 of the minors. Muse split his time last season between the AHL and ECHL and has not played a single game in the NHL in his seven-year professional career. We don't see that changing anytime soon.
Jul 1 - 3:53 PM

The Penguins have re-signed defenseman Zach Trotman to a one-year, two-way contract.

Trotman, who can earn $650,000 at the NHL level next year, played three games for Pittsburgh in 2017-18 and did not register a point. In 49 games in the AHL, Trotman scored seven goals and registered 17 points. Needless to say he does not really have any fantasy value.
Jul 1 - 3:47 PM

Jimmy Hayes has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Hayes' new deal is worth $650,000 at the NHL level. He registered nine points in 33 games with New Jersey last season. Hayes also had two helpers in three outings with Binghamton of the AHL.
Jul 1 - 3:45 PM

Stefan Elliott signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Elliott's annual salary will be at $650,000 if he plays in the NHL or $250,000 in the minors. Regardless of what combination of AHL and NHL service he ends up with though, he's been guaranteed a minimum of $300,000 in total. He had four goals and 21 points in 34 games in the Swedish league last season.
Jul 1 - 2:39 PM

Matt Cullen has signed a one-year, $650,000 contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Cullen had 11 goals and 22 points in 79 games with the Minnesota Wild in 2017-18. He was a solid role player in the Penguins' back-to-back championships, so the Penguins have to be pleased that they were able to get him back. That said, he'll turn 42-years-old in November, so his age makes him a big question mark, even as a fourth-line center.
