Penguins Sign Former Defensive Player of the Year

I rarely discuss the Penguins in July, but the team made a move today that I wanted to mention. The Penguins were in search of a solid defenseman, so they signed Mark Eaton. You may know Eaton as the bearded seven-footer (maybe 7-4") pictured, who led the league in blocks four times and was selected to the all-defensive team three times. I'm not sure how he's going to do on ice skates and he's a little older now, but he will certainly bring a defensive presence to the Pens.

For details about the "other" Eaton, check out the Penguins press release.
