Penguins re-sign Teddy Blueger, two other restricted free agents
The Penguins have reached deals with three of their remaining restricted free agents, announcing the signing of center Teddy Blueger, winger Thomas Di Pauli and defenseman Ethan Prow to one-year contracts on Tuesday.
All three deals are for $650,000 at the NHL level. At the AHL level, Blueger will make $200,000, Di Pauli will make $100,000, and Prow will make $90,000.
With Blueger, Di Pauli, Prow and Jamie Oleksiak under contract, goalie Tristan Jarry is the only restricted free agent yet to re-sign with the Penguins.
Blueger, 23, is the closet of the trio to NHL duty. A two-way center, he was Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s third-leading scorer last season with 21 goals and 45 points in 70 games. He was called up to the NHL once but did not appear in a game.
Di Pauli, 24, is a speedy but oft-injured winger. He had 12 goals and 20 points in 58 AHL games last season.
Prow, 25, is a right-handed offensive defenseman who had four goals and 17 points in 40 games with the Baby Pens last year.
