The Pittsburgh Penguins continued a busy offseason Thursday by inking forward Chris Kunitz to a three-year extension.
The deal begins with the 2014-15 season and carries an average annual value of 3.85 million, the team said.
Kunitz, 33, joined the Penguins in 2009. This season, he scored a team-high 22 goals and his 52 points were second on the team.
Earlier this month, the Penguins signed franchise center Evgeni Malkin to a long-term deal.
