Penguins sign Ryan Bayda to one-year contract

From the Penguins:

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Ryan Bayda to a one-year contract, it was announced by Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bayda, who attended the Penguins’ 2009 training camp on a professional tryout, earned a two-way contract from the club.  The 5-11, 195-pound winger played parts of five seasons with Carolina after the Hurricanes drafted him with the 80th overall pick (third round) in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

Bayda, 28, has tallied 40 points (16G-24A) in 179 career games. Last season, he posted 12 points (5G-7A) in 70 games and four points (2G-2A) in 15 post-season contests, which included four games against the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals.  The Saskatoon, Canada native played three collegiate seasons at the University of North Dakota.
