The Penguins have re-signed Marcus Pettersson to a one-year contract worth $874,125.
Pettersson was traded to the Penguins early in 2019 and he finished with 19 points (2G / 17A) in 57 games with his new team. He won’t play enough meaningful minutes to be fantasy relevant in 2020. However, Kris Letang and Justin Schultz both have durability concerns, so there is a scenario where Pettersson sees PP1 time, it just wouldn’t be a great scenario for the Penguins.

Pettersson is expected to make his Penguins debut on Tuesday.
The Penguins have acquired Marcus Pettersson from the Ducks for Daniel Sprong.
Pettersson was a second round pick (No.38 overall) in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 177 lbs. defenseman has a projectable frame and a great first past but has struggled at times this season. Pettersson was able to carry a +1.9 CF% rel this season and should get a chance for regular playing time in Pittsburgh. Pettersson has 10 points (1G / 9A) in 49 career NHL games.
