Former Buffalo Sabres D-Man Christian Ehrhoff has begun our free agent frenzy by signing a 1 year, $4 million dollar deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Ehrhoff was one of the biggest names on the market when free-agency opened up today, and his quick signing with Pittsburgh is big news.
Ehrhoff, who was just bought out by Buffalo, scored six goals, and tallied 27 assists for the Sabres last season. He's a very good defenseman who will look to make a big impact in Pittsburgh, possibly filling the powerplay hole left by Matt Niskanen.
The Pens got Ehrhoff for a very good price, as he could have probably made more by signing somewhere else.
