The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Craig Adams to a two-year deal. His contract will pay him $550,000 each year for two years, which is a decrease from his $600,000 salary of this past season.
That’s great news for the Penguins as far as signing other guys goes. We figured he could earn around $750,000 to $1 million.
Adams scored 3 goals and added two assists in the playoff run. He’s a solid fourth-line center that we were hoping would get re-signed. His signing means the Penguins are all set down the middle, with each line’s center under contract — Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jordan Staal and Adams.
Chicago placed Adams on waivers and the Pens picked him up. Maybe the Blackhawks should have kept the guy, considering they were knocked out in Western Conference Finals. Solid player, solid guy.
More to come very soon. Check back.
