The Pittsburgh Penguins have inked a very interesting prospect, signing Valtteri Puustinen to a two-year entry-level contract. The deal will kick in for the 2021-22 campaign and keeps Puustinen from becoming an unrestricted free agent next month. Penguins assistant GM Patrik Allvin released a short statement on his newest player:
Valtteri is a skilled forward with a great shot who utilizes his speed to play the style of game that we want to play here in Pittsburgh. He’s really matured as a player over the last couple of years playing with HPK and the Finnish national team, which is really exciting for us.
