 PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Penguins' two oldest players are returning for one more season.
Gary Roberts, 41, and Mark Recchi, 39, agreed to one-year deals Friday.
General manager Ray Shero had said he hoped to keep both veterans on a team with a nucleus of young stars including NHL MVP Sidney Crosby, Evgeny Malkin and Jordan Staal.
``Mark and Gary are talented veteran forwards who can provide essential experience and leadership to our young team,'' Shero said. ``They made significant contributions last season, both on and off the ice, and we're looking forward to having them back in 2007-08.''
Agent Rick Curran, who represents both players, did not immediately return a message left at his office Friday afternoon. Recchi earned $2.28 million last season, and Roberts $2.25 million.
The Penguins acquired Roberts at the trade deadline last season for defenseman Noah Welch. Roberts had 13 points in 19 regular-season games with Pittsburgh.
Recchi, an 18-year veteran, played in all 82 games with the Penguins last season, scoring 24 goals and 44 assists, including his 500th career goal and 800th career assist.
