Also, the Penguins announced this morning they have extended the contract of left winger Chris Kunitz through the 2013-14 season. Kunitz`s salary-cap hit will remain at $3.725 million annually.
Kunitz, 32, said last week he wanted to retire as a Penguin, and this extension may give him that chance.
He has an assist in four games this season. He finished second on the Penguins with 23 goals last season in just 66 games.
