PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) — The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed another familiar face back to the squad.
Forward Sam Miletic has been re-upped on a one-year basis.
General manager Jim Rutherford broke the news on Saturday.
Miletic’s deal is a two-way contract that runs through the end of the 2021 season and is worth an annual value of $700,000.
The 23-year-old has been in the Penguins system already, spending his second season with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League during the 2019-2020 campaign.
He finished the season with 32 points in a team-high 62 games played.
Those 62 games were not only a team high for the 2019-2020 season, but it was also a personal record for Miletic.
As far as career highs go, Miletic also raised the bar this past season with 23 assists (which tied his former record) and three power play goals.
Miletic was named to the 2020 AHL All-Star Classic, representing the Atlantic Division.
Miletic originally went undrafted in 2017, but he got a little experience under his belt by playing with the London Knights and Niagara IceDogs in the Ontario Hockey League up through 2018.
