Penguins sign F Miletic to entry-level contract

Sep 25, 2017 - 3:57 PM The Pittsburgh Penguins signed undrafted free agent forward Sam Miletic to a three-year, entry-level contract on Monday.

Miletic, 20, played in two NHL preseason games with the Penguins this year, scoring the opening goal in Pittsburgh's win in Columbus on Friday. He played in all three Prospect Challenge contests in Buffalo in early September, tallying a goal and an assist in the opening game against Boston. Miletic also skated in Pittsburgh's prospect development camp in July.

The 6-foot, 196-pound Miletic led the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League last season with 37 goals in 65 games, a total that ranked 12th in the OHL. He recorded 55 points overall with 18 assists.

The native of Bloomfield Township, Mich., spent the past two seasons with the Knights, skating in 100 regular-season games and compiling 69 points (40 goals, 29 assists).

Miletic is the third undrafted free agent signed by the Penguins in training camp, joining goaltender Alex D'Orio and forward Jordy Bellerive, both of whom also participated in development camp, the Prospects Challenge and NHL training camp before returning to their junior clubs.
