Penguins Sign Joe Cramarossa to Contract Extension

Published

on

The Pittsburgh Penguins signed forward Joe Cramarossa to a one-year, two-way contract extension, Saturday. The team announced the deal for the minor league forward which will pay Cramarossa $700,000 at the NHL level. His minor league salary was not announced.

Cramarossa, 26,  was acquired by the organization in February 2018 in a minor trade for Colin Smith. The 6-foot, 192 pound forward played in 56 games for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins last season. He netted four goals, 12 assists, and a team-high 116 penalty minutes.

He played in only one preseason game last season and has played in 285 career AHL games. Cramarossa does not likely figure into the Penguins NHL plans but he was an alternate captain for WBS last season and provides veteran leadership.
