With Jordan Staal set to miss at least part of training camp with a foot injury, the Pittsburgh Penguins have found a replacement as they have signed veteran centre Mike Comrie to a one-year contract worth $500,000.

Comrie's agent Ritch Winter told TSN that his client agreed to sign for substantially less than the $1.25 million he earned last season with the Edmonton Oilers because he believed it would help the team.  Winter also said that Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has already contacted Comrie to welcome him to the team.

It has been a whirlwind summer for the 29-year old Comrie who tied the knot with Hollywood star Hillary Duff in August.

In 43 games with the Oilers last season, the Edmonton native had 13 goals and eight assists.  In 568 career games split between the Oilers, Coyotes, Flyers, Senators and Islanders, Comrie has 167 goals and 192 assists.

Comrie was originally selected in the third round, 91st overall by the Oilers in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
