    News

    Pettersson signed a one-year, $874,125 contract with Pittsburgh on Thursday.

    Impact

    Pettersson essentially agreed to sign his qualifying offer, with the only difference being this deal is a one-way contact. The blueliner is betting on himself to repeat his productivity from the 2018-19 campaign, in which he notched two goals and 17 helpers in 57 games after joining the Penguins via trade. The youngster is also seemingly counting on the club taking care of him next time out, as he will remain a RFA heading into 2020-21 as well.

    News

    Pettersson is expected to report to training camp Friday, despite not having signed a new contract with the Penguins, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    Impact

    Pettersson was the Penguins' top priority this offseason, as the team is very high on the blueliner and expects him to be a regular top-four contributor. How general manager Jim Rutherford fits him in under the cap remains to be seen, but all signs point to a 2-3 year bridge deal for Pettersson. In 57 games for the Pens last year, the Swede racked up 19 points, including five with the man advantage, and should challenge for the the 30-point mark in 2019-20.
