The defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins have locked up another player for the long term.

On Tuesday, the club announced that defenceman Kris Letang has signed a four-year contract extension that will pay him $3.5 million per season.

The deal will see Letang stay with the club through the 2013-14 season.

The 22-year-old has recorded three goals and 24 assists in 67 games this season.  His 21:30 minutes of ice time per game ranks as second among the club's blueliners.

Letang was drafted by the Penguins in the third round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.  He was a key member of the Penguins' run to the Stanley Cup in 2009, recording four goals and nine assists in the playoffs.

In 221 career regular season games, Letang has 21 goals and 58 assists.
