Pens Re-Sign Sheahan

The summer’s heating up for the Penguins ahead of the beginning of free agency on July 1. After yesterday’s trade of Conor Sheary and Matt Hunwick to Buffalo for a conditional fourth round pick, the Pens inked Restricted Free Agent Riley Sheahan to a one year deal valued at $2.1 million. That locks up the Pens fourth line center for next season at a reasonable price. Sheahan was invaluable to the Penguins after being traded from Detroit, and found a way to spark his career in the new setting. The Pens also re-signed Jean-Sebastien Dea to a one year, two way contract. Apparently, there have also been unverified reports from multiple news sources that D-man Jack Johnson will be coming to Pittsburgh next season. After yesterday’s trades, the Pens certainly have the cap space to pull that move off.
