Ex Penguin Satan Signs With Bruins
TSN is reporting that former Pittsburgh Penguin winger Miroslav Satan has signed a one-year contract with the Boston Bruins.
The contract, which expires July 1, carries a no-movement clause, which assures Satan he will not be involved in a situation similar to the AHL demotion he went through last spring.
For Satan, he finally gets back into the game after one half of a year playing the waiting game.
As for the Bruins, they hope to add a little more of a scoring punch that has been lacking from their lineup.
“He’s a guy that has shown he is capable of scoring some goals and we hope he will give us some of that and also provide some competition,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said.
It’s an interesting signing, to say the least, but even during his underwhelming one-year tenure in Pittsburgh, Satan showed an ability to score goals and a desire to win.
The signing comes with great timing for Satan, who was selected to be a part of Team Slovakia during the 2010 Olympics in February. He’ll have a little over one month to get himself reacquainted with the competitive element of hockey.
