The Pittsburgh Penguins signed Winger tough guy Arron Asham to a one year contract for 700 thousand. 5′ 11″ 205pd Asham played the last two seasons for the Philadelphia Flyers. Asham is more known for his physical style play than his scoring, but can still put the puck in the net, he netted 10 goals last season.
This changes the landscape of the Penguins lineup and could mean the end for team favorite like Eric Goddard who once again this year was benched for the duration of the playoffs. Asham played 23 games for Philly in the playoffs last year and had 4 goals and 3 assists.
With this signing the Penguins are left with a little under $2 million in salary cap, look for them to possibly make a trade and/or acquire a much needed right handed goal scorer for the power play before the season starts.
