Pittsburgh Penguins sign forward Mike Comrie to $500,000, one-year deal

PITTSBURGH, Pa. – The Pittsburgh Penguins hope they’ve added some scoring help at a bargain price.

The NHL team announced Friday that it had signed veteran forward Mike Comrie to a US$500,000, one-year contract—the minimum salary a player can be paid.

Comrie was limited to 43 games last season with Edmonton because of a mononucleosis. He had 13 goals and 21 points in his second stint with his hometown team.

The 29-year-old has appeared in 568 career NHL games, registering 167 goals and 359 points while playing for the Oilers, Coyotes, Flyers, Islanders and Senators.

Comrie has scored 20 or more goals five times in his career, and twice hit the 30-goal mark.
