Forward Chuck Kobasew is officially a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He signed a one-year deal worth $550,000 with the Penguins today and will most likely be in the opening night lineup. The 31-year-old certainly earned the contract. He was brought in to the organization on a professional tryout deal and made a good impression. Kobasew scored two goals in the five preseason games he played in. He made $1.25 million in each of the past two seasons with the Colorado Avalanche, where he recorded 23 points (12 goals and 11 assists) in 95 games.
