The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with veteran forward Bill Guerin on a one-year, $2 million contract.

The 38-year old Guerin was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.

''We are excited to agree to terms with Billy on this one-year deal,'' general manager Ray Shero said. ''He made a tremendous impact on this team with his scoring ability, physical play and outstanding leadership and was a key factor in our drive to the Cup. I know our players, coaches and fans will be happy to have him back in Pittsburgh.''

The Penguins acquired Guerin from the New York Islanders at the March 4 trade deadline in exchange for a third-round draft pick. He recorded five goals and 12 points in 17 regular season games with the Penguins, while playing a major role in the Penguins' Stanley Cup run.

Guerin has played 1,185 career NHL games with New Jersey, Edmonton, Boston, Dallas, St. Louis, San Jose, the Islanders and the Penguins, recording 408 goals, 403 assists, 811 points and 1,585 penalty minutes. He represented the U.S. in the Olympics in 1998, 2002 and 2006.
