From Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
The Penguins have agreed to a two-year contract with free-agent forward Matt Cooke.
The deal is worth $1.2 million per season.
Cooke, who will be 30 on Sept. 7, is 5 foot 11, 205 pounds and is an accomplished agitator and penalty-killer.

Good signing by the Penguins. As the article states, Cooke is a very suitable replacement for the recently departed Jarkko Ruutu. While he may not be quite as annoying as the man he is replacing, he is certainly close.
