Veteran forwards Gary Roberts and Mark Recchi have agreed to terms on one-year contracts with the Pittsburgh Penguins, sources tell TSN.

Both players were scheduled to become free agents on July 1.

Amid reports that both the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs would pursue Roberts heavily, Roberts agreed to a deal worth $2.5 million.

Recchi's deal is worth $2 million against the salary cap and includes bonus provisions to get to that amount.

Details to follow.
