The Penguins have agreed to terms with forward Nick Johnson who was scheduled to be a restricted free agent.
The deal is for one year and is a two way contract. The Penguins have announced that the deal will pay Johnson $500,000 at the NHL level.
Johnson, 24, had 16 goals and 43 points for Wilkes Barre/Scranton last season in 61 games.
Johnson appeared in six games with the Penguins, making his NHL debut with the Penguins on January 21, 2010. He notched his first career NHL goal and point in his first game against the Capitals.
The 6-foot-1, 202-pound winger is highly expected to push for a roster spot next season.
