PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins signed Rob Scuderi to a four-year, $13.5 million contract on Friday.
The 34-year-old defenseman, who helped Pittsburgh win the Stanley Cup in 2009, played the last four seasons with Los Angeles. He helped the Kings win the 2012 Cup and missed only nine games over his four years with Los Angeles.
Scuderi has seven goals and 79 assists in 585 career NHL games, including one goal and 11 assists in 48 games last season. He had a career bests in points (16) and plus-minus (+23) with the Penguins in 2008-09.
A 1998 fifth-round pick of Pittsburgh's, the Syosset, N.Y., native became a regular with the Penguins in the 2004-05 lockout. He was a reliable presence on the ice and popular in the dressing room, but with the Penguins up against the salary cap he was let go in free agency in July 2009, signing a four-year, $13.6 million deal with Los Angeles.
