Pittsburgh Penguins sign Ruslan Fedotenko and Miroslav Satan for one year

Pittsburgh Penguins sign Ruslan Fedotenko and Miroslav Satan for one year The 2008 Stanley Cup finalists Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forwards Ruslan Fedotenko and Miroslav Satan to a one-year deal, Penguins Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero said today. Fedotenko, 29, scored 33 points (16 goals, 17 assists) in 67 games with the New York Islanders during the 2007-08 season. He led the team and registered a career-high with eight power play goals. Satan, 33, scored 16 goals and added 25 assists in 80 games for the New York Islanders during the 2007-08 campaign. On March 24, 2007, Satan missed the Islanders' game in Philadelphia for personal reasons, ending a streak of having played in 305 consecutive games. It was the fourth longest active streak at the time, and marked the second time in his career that he has played over 250 consecutive games. He had a 256 game streak as a Buffalo Sabre that ended in November 2002. According to the latest reports, Miroslav Satan will earn $3.5 million next season, while Ruslan Fedotenko will earn $2.25 million.

 Also on Thursday, the Pittsburgh Penguins chained goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to a seven-year, $35-million contract. Fleury, 23, was a restricted free agent but the Penguins selected him for salary arbitration in June, preventing other teams from bidding for the goalkeeper. He recorded possibly his best in-net performance of his career in Game 5 at Detroit, where he stopped 55 of 58 shots in a triple overtime win in Game 5 of the Finals for the Penguins. However, the Penguins lost the series in game six.
