NHL News: Carter Extended, Dell Suspended, Waivers, and Prospects Going to the Winter Olympics

Penguins extend Jeff Carter

Bob McKenzie: The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Jeff Carter to a two-year deal with a $3.125 million cap hit. He’ll get $3.25 million in the first year and $3 million in the second year. Carter has a full no-movement clause in both years.

Josh Yohe: “Signing a 37-year-old center to a two-year deal is a pretty good indication that the Penguins are keeping the band together. No rebuild coming for a while.”

Pens Inside Scoop: Penguins GM Ron Hextall on Carter: “Jeff’s experience and versatility have made him a valuable addition to our team. In addition to his on-ice contributions, his team-first attitude has made him a leader inside our locker room, and we are happy to have him under contract for two more years.”

Mike DeFabo: Carter two weeks ago: “I think the trade has worked out great for me. I think it’s given me another boost in my career and probably prolonged it a few more years, hopefully.”

Dell suspended

Chris Johnston: Buffalo Sabres goaltender Aaron Dell was suspended for three games and will forfeit $11,250 in salary.
