Zepp, 32, was signed after seven years with the Deutsche Eishockey League's Eisbären Berlin -- where he was teammates with Claude Giroux and Danny Briere during the 2012-13 lockout. He posted a 2.39 GAA and .931 SP last season, and will complement...

Look, Steve Downie is crazy. But when dialed in he is a perfect bottom-6 guy. This is another move that makes the Penguins better.
