Free-agent defenseman Eaton signs with Penguins
Eaton, a 29-year-old free agent, had four points in 69 games last season but led the team with 170 blocked shots.
He will join Ray Shero, who was assistant general manager at Nashville for eight seasons before being hired last month as the Penguins' general manager.
Eaton has played in 313 games in parts of six seasons with Nashville and Philadelphia.
