Penguins keep Orpik
Finally some good news in Pittsburgh, where the roster had started to look a little thin given yesterday's clearing house.
Brooks Orpik was one of the most heavily sought-after free agent defenders on the market, and he re-signs with the Penguins on a six-year deal for $3.75-million a season.
"Brooks has become a mainstay of our blueline and played an important role in our run to the Stanley Cup Final," GM Ray Shero said. "He provides the kind of physical presence you need on a Cup contender, and his work ethic, preparation, and determination are second to none."
