The Penguins announced the signing of forward Benn Ferriero on Friday morning.
With the exception of the consistent rumors linking the Penguins to Alexander Semin, Pittsburgh has been relatively quiet during the 2012 NHL Free Agency period and hasn't signed anyone since they reached an agreement with Philippe Dupuis on July 5.
The Penguins have signed another one, though, as the signing of forward Benn Ferriero was announced on Friday morning by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Ferriero, 25, has spent parts of each of the last three seasons with the San Jose Sharks and tallied 35 games for the team during the 2011-12 season. In three seasons, Ferriero has accumulated playing time in 92 career games with 14 goals and eight assists.
He's also made appearances in eight postseason games during his career with his sole postseason goal serving as an overtime game winner in Game 1 of the 2011 Western Conference semifinals.
