The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Adam Johnson to a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Friday.

The deal carries an AAV of $700,000 in the NHL.

The 25-year-old put up 43 points in 67 games for the Penguins’ AHL affiliate last season. He made his NHL debut on March 21, appearing in six games and picking up two assists for Pittsburgh.

“Adam has definitely put the work in. He’s a great skater, and has worked extremely hard to get to another level of strength and conditioning, which certainly helped him in his second pro season,” said assistant general manager Bill Guerin in a press release.

“I think he proved not only to us but also to himself that he can play in the National Hockey League.”
