Rob Scuderi, Pittsburgh Penguins Agree to Four-year Deal

Rob Scuderi

The Pittsburgh Penguins are bringing back defenseman Rob Scuderi. He was an unrestricted free agent and agreed to a four-year contract with them this afternoon.

The deal will carry a salary-cap hit of $ 3.375 million. Scuderi, 34, was the Penguins’ fifth-round draft choice in 1998.

He was a member of their Stanley Cup-winning team in 2009, after which he signed a four-year, $ 13.6 million contract with Los Angeles as a free agent.

He earned a second Cup ring with the Kings in 2012.

Scuderi is strictly a defensive defenseman; his most productive offensive season in the NHL was 2008-09, when he put up one goal and 15 assists in 81 games with the Penguins.
