Sutton received five for boarding, a ten and game misconduct.
From Dave Molinari at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
The Penguins made their first free-agent signing this morning, agreeing to a three-year deal with forward Pascal Dupuis.
They also have agreed to the structure of a contract extension for center Evgeni Malkin, although the deal has not been finalized. Malkin’s contract will be patterned after that of Sidney Crosby, which means it will run five years and include an annual salary-cap hit of $8.7 million.
From Larry Wigge at NHL.com,
But the trade to Pittsburgh came as a complete surprise.
“I was actually negotiating on a new contract with Atlanta and I’d been teasing ‘Hoss’ for more than a month before the deadline about how much he was going to like going back to Ottawa or playing in Montreal,” Dupuis explained. “In the end, he got the last laugh.
“At first, I joked with reporters that I was coming along to carry Hoss’s bags. But I got the dream-of-a-lifetime job of playing on a line with Sid and Hoss.”
