The Pittsburgh Penguins signed veteran forward Jeff Carter to a two-year contract extension with an average annual value of $3.125 million, the team announced Wednesday.

The deal also has a full no-movement clause in both years, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

"Jeff's experience and versatility have made him a valuable addition to our team," Penguins general manager Ron Hextall said. "In addition to his on-ice contributions, his team-first attitude has made him a leader inside our locker room, and we are happy to have him under contract for two more years."

Pittsburgh acquired Carter from the Los Angeles Kings prior to the trade deadline in 2021. He's appeared in 50 contests since his arrival, tallying 21 goals and 16 assists.

Carter, 37, is in his 17th season and has twice won the Stanley Cup with the Kings. In 1,130 career games, he's scored 411 goals and added 377 assists.
