Penguins re-sign Matt Cullen to 1-year, $1 million deal

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins re-signed forward Matt Cullen to a one-year, $1 million contract Wednesday for his 20th NHL season.

The 39-year-old Cullen helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup last season.

Cullen, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, had 16 goals and 16 assists in 82 games last season. He added four goals and two assists in 24 playoff games, including two game-winners.

Cullen has 235 goals and 423 assists in 1,294 regular-season games with Anaheim, Florida, Carolina, the New York Rangers, Ottawa, Minnesota, Nashville and Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh will return most of its Stanley Cup-winning team. Defenseman Ben Lovejoy and third-string goalie Jeff Zatkoff left via free agency and Beau Bennett was traded to New Jersey in June.
