Penguins sign Kunitz to three-year extension

PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby will keep at least one linemate around for the long haul.

The Pittsburgh Penguins and forward Chris Kunitz agreed to a three-year contract extension on Thursday that could keep him playing alongside Crosby until the 2016-17 season.

General manager Ray Shero says the new deal, which begins in 2014-15, will carry an annual salary cap hit of $3.85 million.

The 33-year-old Kunitz has flourished since the Penguins acquired him from Anaheim in February 2009. Splitting time between Crosby and Malkin's lines this season, Kunitz led the Penguins with 22 goals and finished second on the team with 52 points.

 

Avs, Flames deal

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames have sent left-winger Alex Tanguay and defenceman Cory Sarich to Colorado in exchange for right-winger David Jones and defenceman Shane O'Brien.

The 33-year-old Tanguay returns to the team that drafted him 12th overall in 1998. He scored a career-high 29 goals for the Avalanche in the 2005-06 season.

 

Hossa may need surgery

CHICAGO -- In the aftermath of the Chicago Blackhawks' Stanley Cup championship, more information about players' injuries during the postseason run are coming to light.

The most serious of the injured is veteran winger Marian Hossa, who said Thursday he might need surgery to repair a disc in his back. Hossa played Games 4-6 against the Boston Bruins with his right foot numb and was limited on the ice. Hossa underwent an MRI and was discussing options with team doctors and training staff.

"When I saw (head trainer) Mike Gapski, he said it's not great," Hossa said. "It's not the best. I may need the surgery but also I may need just a shot."
