Penguins acquire forward Goc from Panthers

The Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday acquired forward Marcel Goc from the Florida Panthers for two draft picks.

Goc is tied for fourth on the Panthers this season with 11 goals and has 23 points in 62 games.

A first-round pick (No. 20) of the San Jose Sharks in the 2001 NHL Draft, the 30-year-old has 72 goals and 177 points in 550 games with the Sharks, Nashville Predators and Panthers.

The Panthers will receive a third-round and fifth-round pick in exchange for Goc.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
