The Penguins re-signed forward Brian Gibbons on Monday.

Gibbons has played the past two seasons for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) and is expected to play there next season as well. His contract is a two-way deal worth $550,000 at the NHL level.

Gibbons scored eight goals and had 30 points in 70 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season.

He was signed as an unrestricted free agent by the Penguins on April 4, 2011.

Gibbons, 25, won two national championships at Boston College, where he scored 164 points in 160 games.

Lack of size has been Gibbons' biggest roadblock to the NHL. The center is listed at 5-foot-8, 170 pounds.
