Dominik Uher will get a chance to crack the Pittsburgh Penguins’ roster again after signing a one-year, two-way deal, per the Penguins’ website.

He’ll come with a $575,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL.

Taken with the 144th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the 22-year-old forward has spent the bulk of the last three campaigns with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. However, he did make his NHL debut on Dec. 23 and played again on Dec. 29. He was credited with two hits and one blocked shot while averaging 6:27 minutes of ice time per contest.

He also recorded 13 goals, 26 points, and 60 penalty minutes in 72 AHL contests in 2014-15. In total he has 57 points and 187 penalty minutes in 193 career AHL games.
