Brooks Orpik avoids arbitration, re-signs with Pens

On Sunday, the Penguins announced that Brooks Orpik has agreed to a two-year deal with the team and will avoid his arbitration hearing, which was scheduled for July 24. No financial details are available yet.

Erik Cole will get to meet Orpik for the first time since "the incident" on October 14 in Pittsburgh. I'm not really a fan of the vigilante justice, but Colesy is very much looking forward to "saying hello" to Orpik.
