Pens re-sign Craig Adams to a two-year contract  *UPDATED*


Per the team's website:

The Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Craig Adams to a two-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero. Financial terms were not disclosed.
 
Adams, 32, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

The gritty Adams played a key support role in the Penguins’ drive to the Stanley Cup, chipping in three goals and two assists for five points in 24 playoff games. After being claimed on waivers from the Chicago Blackhawks on March 4, he played nine regular-season games for the Penguins and recorded one assist.

When terms of the deal leak, we'll post them -- throw them in the comments if you hear anything.

Without a player like Adams or Adam Hall in that 4th line PK role, Pittsburgh struggled so it's good to see Adams back in the fold.

UPDATE!

He got a two-year deal that will pay him $550,000 each season, down from the $600,000 he earned in 2008-09.

A good deal for the Penguins, and yes Adams.  Less than four months ago Adams was on waivers, so for him to guarantee himself $1.1 million over the next two years is a significant development.  And Pittsburgh gets to keep a "glue guy" and a nice piece to the puzzle.  Everybody wins.
