Penguins sign F Kennedy to two-year deal

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Penguins on Friday re-signed forward Tyler Kennedy to a two-year contract worth $4 million.

The announcement came soon after Pittsburgh formally withdrew their one-year contract offer to free-agent forward Jaromir Jagr.

Kennedy, 24, had 21 goals and 45 points in 80 games last season with Pittsburgh. In 266 career NHL games, Kennedy, 5-foot-11 and 183 pounds, has 59 goals and 124 points.

A native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Kennedy helped lead the Penguins to the 2009 Stanley Cup, with five goals and nine points that postseason.

Later in the day, Jagr signed a one-year deal, worth $3.3 million, with the Philadelphia Flyers.
