Rangers sign former Penguins forward Lee Stempniak to a one year deal

Maybe this summer hasn’t been a total loss after all? According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers have signed former Penguin Lee Stempniak to a one year contract worth $900K.

Penguins Update: Stempniak Provides a Spark

Lately the Pittsburgh Penguins haven’t had a whole lot to write home about. The black and gold is mired in an ugly 2-4-1 funk. They’re a mediocre 6-6-2 since the Olympic break.
