Published Add your comment

Pittsburgh Penguins have today announced the signing of right-wing Pascal Dupuis on a four-year contract.

The 34-year-old was just days away from becoming an unrestricted free agent, before penning a new long-term deal with the Pennsylvania-based franchise, which is worth a reported $15million.

The announcement comes just hours after the Penguins agreed terms on an eight-year extension with Kris Letang, who penned a lucrative $58million deal.

Dupuis was one of the Penguins' top offensive threats last season, scoring 20 goals and making 18 assists in 48 NHL games in 2012/13, and was a key member of the successful 2009 Stanley Cup championship team.

His new deal runs until the 2016/17 campaign, with an average annual salary of $3.75million, and joins fellow line mate Chris Kunitz in committing his long-term future to the Penguins.
