The Pittsburgh Penguins have added more forward depth today, signing forward Jason Williams to a two-way deal that pays him 600k at the NHL level and 105k at the AHL level.

Williams, a 31 year old forward who won the Stanley Cup back in 2002 with the Red Wings, has racked up 447 career NHL games (93G, 132A) in his career and if he doesn't make the NHL Penguins he would be a great addition to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Williams has had injury problems of late, only appearing in 27 games with the Dallas Stars last season (2G, 3A) and 17 games in the AHL with the Connecticut Whale (4G, 5A) but could be a stud in the AHL if he can stay healthy.

I can see Williams slotting in at the top line center position in Wilkes-Barre to start the 2011-12 campaign. It looks like Ray Shero has done it again, just as WBS fans were begging for that top line center.
