The Penguins added four minor league free agents Monday, signing defenseman Will O’Neill and forwards Ryan Haggerty, Patrick McGrath and Cam Brown to AHL contracts.

O’Neill, a 30-year-old offensive defenseman out of the University of Maine, made his NHL debut for Philadelphia last season, playing one game. He had 50 points in 74 games for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in 2015-16.

Haggerty, a 25-year-old right wing from RPI, is coming off a strong season with the Baby Pens, recording 16 goals and 37 points in 47 games.

McGrath, a 25-year-old native of the Wilkes-Barre area, has 20 fighting majors in 70 AHL games over the past four seasons.

Brown, an undersized, 25-year-old forward out of Maine, had 53 points in 55 games with the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers last season.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
