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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
