Pens re-sign Brooks Orpik

The Penguins re-signed Brooks Orpik to a two year deal today. Terms were not disclosed.

I was really impressed when I looked at the article on TSN about the signing - I didn't realize Orpik had decent numbers last year (this was one of those things were you step back and say "wow!"...).

In only 64 games, Orpik averaged over three hits per game, and just under two blocked shots per game, leading the team in both categories. He also drastically improved his +/- (from -36 his rookie year to -3 last year) on a team that wasn't much better than the prior season.

I'm looking forward to seeing how he progresses this year.
