Pittsburgh Penguins

NHL CapHit: $700,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Penguins have signed Evan Rodrigues to a one-year deal worth $700K.

Rodrigues was acquired from Buffalo last February and then his rights were flipped to Toronto in the Kasperi Kapanen deal this summer. Toronto did not tender the RFA, so he was free to re-join the Penguins on Friday. Rodrigues had six goals and four assists (10 points) in 45 NHL games last year and GM Jim Rutherford said on Friday that he'll be on the third line with Mark Jankowski and Jared McCann to start 2021.

Rodrigues spent five years in the Sabres organization after signing as an undrafted free-agent in 2015. The 26-year-old has spent the majority of his career playing in Buffalo’s bottom-six, compiling 26 goals and 45 assists in 192 career games. He is set to become a restricted free-agent on July 1st.

Rodrigues left Sunday's game with an undisclosed injury and is questionable to play Monday.

Rodrigues played just 0:40 TOI in Sunday's win over the Panthers, which left the Sabres with just 10 forwards after dressing 11 forwards and seven defensemen. With Rodrigues hurt, the Sabres recalled J-S Dea from Rochester on Monday morning and he will likely make his season debut in Rodrigues' place.

The Sabres signed Evan Rodrigues to a one-year deal worth $2.0 million (via arbitration).

Rodrigues had nine goals and 20 assists (29 points) in 74 games during his first full NHL season in 2018-19. With bigger named prospects faltering around him, Rodrigues settled into a middle-6 role with the Sabres and finished the season ranked fourth among Buffalo forwards in TOI/GP (15:49). Entering the 2020 season, Rodrigues will once again be battling with Casey Mittelstadt for the No.2 centre role.
