The Penguins' Jean-Sebastien Dea celebrates his goal against the Hurricanes in the second period for his first NHL score Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena.

The Penguins got another restricted free agent under contract Thursday, signing center Jean-Sebastien Dea to a one-year deal.

The two-way contract will pay the 24-year-old Dea $650,000 at the NHL level.

Dea is coming off a strong season. In the AHL, he was Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s second-leading scorer behind Daniel Sprong, recording 18 goals and 50 points in 70 games. He also played five NHL games, scoring his first career goal Jan. 23 against Carolina.

The Penguins have five restricted free agents still awaiting contracts, Jamie Oleksiak at the NHL level and Teddy Blueger, Ethan Prow, Thomas Di Pauli and Tristan Jarry at the AHL level.

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.
