The Pittsburgh Penguins re-signed restricted free agent center Brandon Sutter to a two-year, $6.6 million contract on Tuesday.

Last season, Sutton had 13 goals and 26 points in 81 games and added five goals and seven points in the Stanley Cup playoffs. He also led the Penguins in short-handed goals with three.

In 215 career NHL games, Sutter has 77 goals and 152 points.

Sutter, the son of former NHL player and coach Brent Sutter, came into the league as the No. 11 overall draft pick by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2007. The Hurricanes trade Sutter, Brian Dumoulin and a first-round pick to the Penguins on June 22, 2012, for Jordan Staal.
