The Penguins have signed defenseman Brooks Orpik to a six-year deal. TSN is reporting it's a six-year deal worth $22.5 million.
EN Says: What a roller coaster day for Ray Shero. We like the signing. It keeps the Penguins very physical on the blue line. We just wonder what they're going to do with all these NHL-caliber defenseman now. Orpik joins Mark Eaton, Hal Gill, Sergei Gonchar, Kris Letang, Rob Scuderi, Darryl Sydor, Ryan Whitney and prospect Alex Goligoski. Is a trade in the works perhaps?
Note: Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News is reporting Orpik was a player the Kings had targeted.
