The Pittsburgh Penguins and restricted free agent forward Nick Spaling agreed to terms on a two-year, $4.4 million contract, the team announced Thursday.

The sides were scheduled for a salary arbitration hearing in Toronto later Thursday.

The 25-year-old Spaling was acquired by the Penguins from the Nashville Predators on June 28 along with forward Patric Hornqvist in exchange for forward James Neal.

Spaling had career bests of 13 goals and 32 points in 71 games with the Predators last season.

---The Ottawa Senators and goaltender Robin Lehner agreed to terms on a three-year contract with an average annual value of $2.225 million, the team announced Thursday.

Lehner, 23, went 12-15-6 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 36 games (30 starts) last season. He will be paid $1.5 million this season, $2.025 million next season and $3.15 million in 2016-17.

A second-round pick by Ottawa (No. 46) in the 2009 draft, Lehner is 21-24-10 with a 2.82 goals-against average, .918 save percentage and two shutouts in 61 games.

---The Philadelphia Flyers will induct Eric Lindros, John LeClair and Eric Desjardins into the Flyers Hall of Fame during the 2014-15 season, team president Paul Holmgren announced Thursday.

Lindros and LeClair will be inducted Nov. 20 before a game against the Minnesota Wild and Desjardins will join the group with a ceremony before a Feb. 19 game against the Buffalo Sabres.
