The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Daniel Carcillo to a professional tryout contract, the club announced today.

Carcillo is, of course, well-known to Pens fans. The 29-year-old tough guy was originally drafted by the Pens in 2003 and had his longest NHL stint with Pittsburgh’s biggest rivals, the Philadelphia Flyers. He’s also played for the Coyotes, Blackhawks, Kings, and, most recently, the Rangers.

From the Pens’ press release:

A native of King City, Ontario, Carcillo was a part of Chicago’s 2013 Stanley Cup championship squad. He has played in three of the last five Stanley Cup Finals – 2014 with the NY Rangers; 2013 with Chicago; and 2010 as a member of the Flyers.

Carcillo has played in 390 career NHL regular-season contests, producing 44 goals, 48 assists, 92 points and 1,179 penalty minutes. He has added 14 points (7G-7A), 97 penalty minutes and a plus-9 in 45 postseason games.
