Jesse Puljujarvi has had a roller coaster career thus far bouncing around between NHL teams and different leagues across the globe. Today, he has signed a new contract in the NHL.

Jeese Puljujarvi Inks New Deal With The Pittsburgh Penguins



Jesse Puljujarvi has secured a new contract with the National Hockey League, as officially announced by the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. The signing comes after Puljujarvi's successful professional tryout offer, solidifying a two-year deal. The contract, with an average annual value of $800,000 per season, is considered a cost-effective arrangement for the Penguins.

The Penguins have signed forward Jesse Puljujarvi to a two-year contract.

The two-year contract runs through the end of the 2024.25 season and carries an average annual value of $800,000.




Having joined the Penguins in December 2023 through a PTO, Puljujarvi has since made his mark with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the team's American Hockey League affiliate. In 13 games, he showcased his skills by scoring 4 goals and contributing 5 assists, accumulating a total of 9 points.



Penguins' general manager Kyle Dubas expressed his optimism about Puljujarvi returning to the impressive form he displayed two seasons ago as a member of the Edmonton Oilers. Dubas had hoped that Puljujarvi could regain that level of performance after spending time in the AHL to regain match fitness. The recent announcement suggests that Puljujarvi has indeed met Dubas' expectations.
