Mark Eaton is Back

By Kipper @pghsportsforum

Eaton, 35, is a stay-at-home defenseman and was a member of the Penguins' 2009 Stanley Cup team. He had been practicing with the team in an informal arrangement, and Eaton has said he was hopeful it would lead to a contract.
Earlier this season, Eaton played six games with the Penguins' American Hockey League affiliate on a professional tryout agreement. He spent the previous two seasons with the New York Islanders.
To make room for Eaton on the roster, the Penguins placed center Evgeni Malkin on injured reserve. Malkin has a concussion and has been ruled out of playing on a three-game road trip that begins Tuesday at Florida. He could be activated from IR as soon as this weekend, with the Penguins then having to reduce its roster by one.

Sort of a strange move, considering our depth is supposed to be D. He's signed to only a 1-year contract but when Geno comes back, someone will have to go. I suppose if Eaton is playing decently Boychuck or Jefrey become the odd man out. Or maybe there is a surprise trade. Anyway, Eaton did well here before. Maybe he can help out.
BTW, think I saw where the contract was for $750k.
