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'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
