Justin Schultz has signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Schultz was an unrestricted free agent after the Penguins declined to present him with a qualifying offer. That allowed Pittsburgh to present him with a significantly cheaper contract than the $3.9 million deal he had for 2015-16. He had four goals and 18 points in 63 games with Edmonton and Pittsburgh last season.

Although it was initially suggested that Phil Kessel's hand injury was sustained at the start of the playoffs, it seems it was something he dealt with all season, according to Penguins GM Jim Rutherford.

Rutherford also confirmed that Kessel isn't expected to miss the start of the 2016-17 campaign over this. He underwent hand surgery to deal with the issue.

Phil Kessel has undergone hand surgery.

Kessel injured his hand at the start of the playoffs, but still went on to participate in the rest of the postseason. He scored 10 goals and 22 points in 24 playoff games. Kessel should be fine for the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

Garrett Wilson has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Wilson's deal comes with a $575,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level. He had no points and 24 penalty minutes in 29 games with the Florida Panthers in 2015-16.

Veteran Matt Cullen wants to return for another year in the NHL.

While Cullen would love to come back and play for the Penguins in the same role that helped Pittsburgh win the Stanley Cup, there may not be enough room under the salary cap for Cullen’s salary. The Wild are apparently also interested in Cullen’s services and that would be a homecoming for the Minnesota native. "Once it's gone, it's gone. If you retire, if you quit, if you do whatever, six months down the road, you're not going to be able to say, ‘Oh, I'm going to play again.' You're done," assistant GM Bill Guerin said. "I'm so happy he's decided to play. It was the right choice because he's got a lot of gas left in the tank."

The Pittsburgh Penguins are still interested in signing UFA Matt Cullen.

Cullen was a vital piece in the Penguins march to the Stanley Cup but do not want to become involved in a bidding war for the veteran center. The 39-year-old had 15 goals and 32 points in 82 games and chipped in with six more points in 24 playoff games. Cullen loves it in Pittsburgh and while he could retire, he likely will get a deal done with the Penguins in the near future. He has no real fantasy value.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have extended the contract of GM Jim Rutherford by three years.

Rutherford's deal will expire in 2018-19. The Stanley Cup champion GM is now 67 years of age and this could be his last deal. "Hard to say (if this is my last contract)," Rutherford said. "I mean, when I stepped down in Carolina, I thought that was it. Then I came here for a couple years, and now it's a few more years. You know, for a lot of years, people have asked me how long I'm going to do this, and most of those people that have asked me, I've outlasted them all."

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Cameron Gaunce to a one-year/two-way contract.

The 26-year-old has played 20 games in the NHL but has not been in the league in the last two seasons. He had two goals and 35 assists in the AHL last season with Florida's affiliate in Portland and will likely play the majority of the 2016-17 season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Chad Ruhwedel to a one-year/two-way contract.

Ruhwedel will provide depth for the Penguins and will get $575,000 when he plays in the NHL. He has no fantasy value and should spend most of his season in the AHL.

Stuart Percy has signed a one-year, two-way deal with Pittsburgh.

He will earn $575,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 if he plays in the AHL. Percy was the 25th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by Toronto, but the Leafs decided to cut him loose at the end of the 2015-16 season. He has skated in just 12 NHL games over the last two years.
Jul 1 - 1:15 PM

Steven Oleksy has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with Pittsburgh.

Matt Cullen wants to re-sign with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"It was a pretty special place for me, and it was a great fit for me and my family," Cullen said. "I would really like for it to work out there." There was some speculation that Cullen might retire, but he's decided to extend his career for another season. It wouldn't be surprising if Cullen and the Penguins found a common ground.
