Brock McGinn signed a four-year $ 11 million deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday. It has an average annual value of $ 2.75 million.
“I think everything is bright about this organization,” said McGinn on Monday. “You can’t say anything bad about that. I think they have a chance every year. And when it comes down to it, I didn’t want to go anywhere where I wouldn’t have a chance to win the Stanley Cup. When I went to Pittsburgh it was one of the best decisions. “
The 27-year-old forward scored 13 points (eight goals, five assists) in 37 regular season games and four points (three goals, one assist) in eleven Stanley Cup playoff games for the Carolina Hurricanes last season.
“He’s playing a real inside game,” said Penguins managing director Ron Hextall on Wednesday. “He has really good energy. Physical player. Plays the same every night. We just really appreciated the player, but we also appreciated the intangibles he brings with him every night and some of the stuff he’ll bring to our dressing room. “
Selected by Carolina in the second round (# 47) of the 2012 NHL Draft, McGinn has 106 points (51 goals, 55 assists) in 345 regular-season NHL games and 12 points (six goals, six assists) in 34 playoffs Games.
The Penguins have also signed forward Evan Rodrigues to a one-year contract for $ 1 million and striker Dominik Simon to a one-year two-way contract that will earn him $ 750,000 if he’s in the NHL.
Rodrigues scored 14 points (seven goals, seven assists) in 35 regular season games and had an assist in two playoff games with Pittsburgh last season.
Simon ran out of points in 11 games with the Calgary Flames last season after signing a $ 700,000 one-year free agent contract on October 22, 2020. He’d been with the Penguins for the past five seasons.
