Penguins re-sign Ben Lovejoy and Tim Wallace

Per the team:

The Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Ben Lovejoy to a one-year contract and forward Tim Wallace to a two-year deal, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.

Lovejoy figures to be the #7 defenseman in Pittsburgh this year and possibly make the jump to being a full-time NHL player.  Lovejoy made his NHL debut in 2008-09, appearing in two games for the Penguins.  He posted an AHL best +/- of +42 last season in 76 games with Wilkes-Barre.

Wallace was impressive in his stints in the NHL where in 16 games played, he showed a willingness to skate hard, throw hits and take on bigger guys in fights.

Terms of the deal not immediately released, check the comments when it breaks.
