Report: Penguins re-sign Kasperi Kapanen to 2-year deal.

The Penguins have re-signed forward Kasperi Kapanen to a 2-year deal worth $6.4M, with an AAV of $3.2M per year.

Kapanen recorded 11 goals and 20 assists for 31 points in 79 games last season, along with three assists in seven playoff games against the New York Rangers last year in what many people thought was a very underwhelming season, compared to Kapanen getting 30 points in 40 games the season prior with the Pens, and scoring a goal and three points in six playoff games versus the New York Islanders in what was his first season in a Penguins uniform. In total, Kapanen has put up 22 goals and 40 assists for 62 points in 119 games with the Penguins so far.

Kapanen was drafted by the Penguins’ 22nd overall in 2014 and has played 321 career NHL games with the Pens and Toronto Maple Leafs. He has recorded 63 goals and 89 assists for 152 points in his career so far.

Kapanen was traded to the Leafs along with forward Nick Spaling, defenseman Scott Harrington, and a 2016 3rd-Round Pick on July 1st, 2016, in exchange for forward Phil Kessel, forward Tyler Biggs, and defenseman Tim Erixon.

Kapanen was re-acquired by the Penguins on August 25th, 2020, along with forward Pontus Åberg, and defenseman Jesper Lindgren, in exchange for prospect forward Filip Hållander, defenseman David Warsofsky, and the Pens’ 2020 1st-Round Pick, which the Leafs used to select forward Rodion Amirov.
