    PENGUINS SIGN COOKE TO TWO-YEAR DEAL

    Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - The Pittsburgh Penguins continued to restock their roster Saturday, signing forward Matt Cooke to a two-year contract.

    "Matt is a versatile forward that will bring grit, energy and experience to our lineup," said Pens general manager Ray Shero. "He is the type of player that adds depth up front and is capable of providing offense for our hockey club."

    Cooke split last season between the Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals, scoring 10 goals and adding 13 assists in 78 total games.

    The 29-year-old spent eight-plus seasons with the Canucks before going to the Caps in a trade deadline deal for forward Matt Pettinger.

    Vancouver's sixth-round pick in 1997 has posted 86 goals and 210 points in 583 career contests.

    I really like this guy. He is not big (5'11" 205) and not much of a fighter, but he is solidly built and hits hard on the forecheck, is tough, and actually has a nice scoring touch especially around the net. He'll be a fan favorite very soon. This is a great value signing. I wish we'd have signed 3 or 4 cooke-type players instead of Satan.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    It's always good to have a pest/agitator-type. When Ruutu moved on to the Sens, a guy like this was a must-signing.
