Penguins Sign Jason Williams

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed veteran forward Jason Williams to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced today. The deal is worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

Williams, 30, spent parts of last season with the Dallas Stars and the AHL’s Connecticut Whale, posting very modest numbers in the process.

Williams appeared to be a player on the rise after the 2005-06 season, when he put up 58 points in 80 games for the Detroit Red Wings.

↵

Since then, he has battled through inconsistency and a number of injuries, including a fractured fibula in 2009, limiting his playing time and production.

The move is a safe and simple one, giving the Penguins additional experience and depth at both the NHL and AHL levels.
