Pens claim RW Craig Adams

The Pens claimed winger Craig Adams on waivers from the Chicago Blackhawks.  His salary cap number for the season is 600 K, so there's no real damage there.  He's a UFA after this season.

Adams will add grit to the third and fourth line.  He has some size (6'0", 200 lbs) and plays tough.

He wasn't playing many minutes in Chicago, but he was killing penalties.  Another piece for the PK is always a good idea, even if it just gives IHCDB more flexibility.

Nice addition for the stretch run, especially at the price.
