Rob Scuderi signs four-year contract with Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins brought back Rob Scuderi on Friday signing him to a four-year contract.
Rob Scuderi is returning to the team that he won his first Stanley Cup with.
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced on Friday that they have signed Scuderi to a four-year contract that will pay him $3.375 million per season.
The Penguins obviously wanted to improve their defense this summer after struggling on the back end at times last season, and Scuderi has a history with the team after spending the first five years of his career in Pittsburgh. He also played a key role in their 2009 Stanley Cup win over the Detroit Red Wings.
He signed a four-year contract with the Kings the following summer and was a part of their Stanley Cup.
He might be able to help in the short-term, but a four-year contract at that price for a 34-year-old defenseman has to be a significant risk, especially when his game appeared to slow down a bit this past season in Los Angeles. Especially since the Penguins are already loaded against the cap.
