Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach
NOTES -- The Penguins signed winger Libor Pivko, acquired from Nashville in a trade last month, to a one-year contract. General manager Ray Shero has said he expects Pivko, 26, to earn a spot on the NHL roster or return to the Czech Republic. They also signed defenseman Alain Nasreddine to a one-year contract. Primarily a career minor-leaguer, Nasreddine, 31, played in six NHL games last season and has appeared in 24 in his career. Both signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $450,000 if they stick in the NHL.
