The Pittsburgh Penguins have inked a pair of depth players, signing David Warsofsky and Andrew Agozzino to two-year, two-way contracts. Both deals will carry an average annual value of $700K at the NHL level. The minor league players were teammates last season with the Colorado Eagles. Assistant GM Bill Guerin released a statement on the deals:
David and Andrew are two guys that are going to provide great depth for our organization. They are both leaders that can help mentor some of our younger players. If there are injuries or trades, you need guys like David and Andrew, who have both NHL and AHL experience, to be able to come in and contribute. We’re lucky to get two guys with great experience in this role, and expect both of them to push to make the NHL roster out of training camp.
