The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Sam Lafferty to a two-year, entry-level contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.

Lafferty's deal will begin with the 2018-19 campaign. He will report to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins this week on an amateur tryout contract.

Lafferty, 23, wrapped up a four-year college career at Brown University this week. The senior was Brown's team leader this year in assists (14) and points (22), and his eight goals were second on the club.
