The Pittsburgh Penguins and general manager Ray Shero have reportedly re-signed forward Brian Gibbons to a one-year-contract worth $550,000 when he reaches the NHL – according to the team’s website.

The 25-year-old Gibbons has played the last two seasons with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, after signing on as an undrafted free agent April 4th, 2011.

Skating in 70 contests last season, Gibbons garnered 30 points (8G, 22A) and skated to a minus-11 rating.  During the Calder Cup playoffs, he registered eight points (3G, 5A) in 15 games.

In his first year with WBS, the 5-foot-8 Gibbons had similar statistics — as he skated in 70 games and logged 30 points (11G, 19A), but skated to a plus-4 rating.

He will most likely continue to play down at WBS for the upcoming 2013-14 campaign.
