By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The Penguins have agreed to terms with Jeff Carter on a two-year contract extension.

The team announced the news on Wednesday. The contract extension kicks in for the 2022-23 season and runs through 2023-24. The extension carries an average annual value of $3.125 million.

"Jeff's experience and versatility have made him a valuable addition to our team," said Penguins general manager Ron Hextall said in a release. "In addition to his on-ice contributions, his team-first attitude has made him a leader inside our locker room and we are happy to have him under contract for two more years."

The Penguins acquired Carter in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings last April. The Penguins gave up conditional 2022 third-round and 2023 fourth-round draft picks in exchange for the forward.
