The Penguins re-signed defenseman Deryk Engelland (right) to a one-year two-way deal. Scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, Engelland, 28, appeared in nine games this season and recorded two assists and 17 penalty minutes.
In 71 games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, Engelland recorded 11 points (five goals, six assists) and 121 penalty minutes. Engelland has been a member of the Penguins organization since the 2007-08 season.
EN Says: It's nice to see Engelland back in the fold. He will be given every chance to make the NHL club next season with the Penguins bound to lose one of the five unrescitred free agents they have on defense. In his cup of coffee with the NHL club last season, Engelland played a simple, stay-at-home game and was more than willing to get physical. Frankly, his style of game is exactly what this team needs.
