Report: Pens Re-Sign Dustin Jeffrey To One-Year


 

The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reportedly re-signed forward Dustin Jeffrey to a one-year contract Thursday worth $625,000 – according to the Pens’ website.

Selected in the sixth-round (171st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Pens, Jeffrey has been up-and-down between Wilkes-barre/Scranton and Pittsburgh the past five seasons.

In 90 career regular-season contests with Pittsburgh, Jeffrey has posted 27 points (15G, 12A), and the Pens are 11-2-0 all-time when he registers a goal.

His best campaign was perhaps in WBS during 2009-10, when he logged 71 points (24G, 47A) and skated to a plus-7 rating.

Playing in 24 NHL games this last season, Jeffrey posted six points (3G, 3A) and skated to a plus-1 rating.

He didn’t skate in the postseason — and has yet to.
