Pittsburgh Penguins Sign Forward Stefan Noesen To NHL Contract

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- The Pens are adding depth to their club and they are bringing in a familiar face to do so.

The Pens announced the signing of Stefan Noesen Monday afternoon. Noesen has led the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins in scoring (both goals and points) so far this season.

"The Penguins have agreed to terms with forward Stefan Noesen on a one-year contract. The two-way deal runs through the end of this season and has a value of $700,000 at the NHL level."

Noesen is now under a two-way deal and is heading to the Penguins to help supplement the lineup that is riddled with injuries.

"#Pens add in their release that Noesen is reporting to the NHL club. That could explain why Joseph Blandisi is reportedly on waivers."

The 26-year-old has played for the New Jersey Devils and Anaheim Ducks before becoming a prospect in the Penguins' minor league system.

Forward Bryan Rust is still day-to-day while Patric Hornqvist was injured in a fall at practice and is being evaluated.
