Morning Fringe Signings (Jul 20)

The Pittsburgh Penguins added some cheap depth on Thursday afternoon, signing forward Derek Grant to a 1-year, $650,000 deal. Grant spent the 2018 season with the Anaheim Ducks and the 28-year old had a decent year in a fairly regular role.  Grant played in 66 games, scoring 12 goals and 24 points, which had him ranked 258th among all forwards in scoring.

It's hard to say where Grant may fit in with the Penguins in the coming season, he has had a hard time fitting in with lesser teams and the Penguins have been doing well developing their own youth.  I'm not sure we have a great sleeper candidate, but if you pencil him in on the bottom of your sheets, he could be worth a gamble with a good training camp.
