Insider Only Pens agree to terms with former 20 goal scoring forward Jason Williams

The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with 30 year old winger Jason Williams. The deal is a one year, two-way deal worth $600,000 at the NHL level.
Williams, 30, 5-foot-11, 185lbs is a former 20 goal scorer, scoring a career high 21 goals and 58 points for the Detroit Red Wings in 2005-2006.
Williams though hasn’t been very effective in his last two seasons, dealing with a bad broken leg in 2010, but is an intriguing player going into camp due to his versatility to play center and wing and ability on the power play.

Williams had 2 goals and 3 assists in 27 games with the Dallas Stars last season, signing with the Stars in February.
In 2009-2010, Williams appeared in 44 games with the Detroit Red Wings, collecting 6 goals and 15 points.
Williams isn’t that far removed from a 19 goal – 47 point season with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Atlanta Thrashers in 2008-2009.
Williams was a member of the Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cup winning team in 2001-2002.
He’s destined for Wilkes Barre but a solid depth signing.
