Engelland's Contract Extended

Engelland (Pens webpage)
The Penguins announced earlier today that they have extended defenseman Deryk Engelland's contract to three years.

The new contract goes into effect at the start of the 2011-12 season and will run through 2013-14. The average annual value of the deal is $566,700 over the term of the contract.
Even though Engelland is a defenseman and Eric Godard is a forward, I would think this extension may affect Godard getting re-signed with the Pens ... there's only so much room for enforcers and right now the team has more than their share (Engelland, Godard, Asham, etc.).  And Engelland has not only done a good job enforcing, he's produced for the team as well.
