Penguins officials apparently liked what they saw this weekend from Quinnipiac goaltender Eric Hartzell.

The team announced Sunday it signed the college free agent to a one-year, entry-level contract valued at $925,000.

Hartzell's Quinnipiac team fell to Yale in the Frozen Four final Saturday at Consol Energy Center.

The 6-foot-4 goalie was a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, which is given to college hockey's best player.

He posted a 30-7-5 record this season with a 1.57 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage. He also was a first-team All-American.

Hartzell, 23, is a native of White Bear Lake, Minn.
