Default Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach

Maybe not Domi, but this guy will do!

PITTSBURGH ? The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Jarkko Ruutu, it was announced Tuesday by General Manager Ray Shero.

Ruutu, 30, appeared in all 82 games during the 2005-06 season with the Vancouver Canucks, recording 17 points (10+7) and 142 penalty minutes. Ruutu established new career highs in games played, goals, points and penalty minutes. Additionally, Ruutu won a silver medal with Finland at the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The 6-0 and 200-pound native of Helsinki, Finland has appeared in 267 career NHL games, all with Vancouver, recording 51 points (23+28) and 453 penalty minutes. Ruutu won a silver medal with Finland at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, playing in four games during the tournament.

Remember folks - he is the man who took out Jaromir Jagr at the Olympics, and is one of the most hated players in the NHL. The Pens seem to love signing guys like this - Ulfie, Kaspar, now Jarkko!
