The Pittsburgh Penguins have named Kevin Stevens a special assignment scout, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Stevens, 52, will be based out of Boston, and his role will include amateur scouting and the scouting of college free agents.

A native of Brockton, Massachusetts, Stevens is one of the most accomplished players in team history, ranking in the top-10 on the franchise's all-time lists for goals (260, 7th), assists (295, 10th) and points (555, 8th) in 522 games over two stints with the club. He was a key catalyst for Pittsburgh during its back-to-back Stanley Cup championship wins in 1991 and '92.

One of the top power forwards of his era, Stevens hit the 40-goal mark four times with Pittsburgh, including a career-high 55 tallies in 1992-93.
