The Pittsburgh Penguins avoided arbitration with defenceman Robert Bortuzzo on Wednesday by agreeing with him on a two-year, $1.2 million contract.

The Penguins and Bortuzzo had been scheduled for an arbitration hearing on August 1.

The 24-year-old from Thunder Bay, Ontario had two goals and two assists in 15 games for the Penguins last season.

He also appeared in 31 games for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL, where he had one goal and three assists.

Bortuzzo was a restricted free agent after being tendered a qualifying offer by the Penguins on July 2.
