The Pittsburgh Penguins added defensive depth on Sunday, signing Boris Valabik to a one-year, two-way contract.

Valabik, 25, will be paid $550,000 at the NHL level.

The native of Slovakia spent last season in the American Hockey League, split between the Thrashers' affiliate in Chicago and the Bruins' farm club in Providence.

Valabik has recorded seven assists and 210 penalty minutes in 80 NHL contests with Atlanta from 2007-10.
