Phoenix trades Zigomanis to Pittsburgh

Thursday, 10.09.2008 / 7:30 PM / News

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes traded center Mike Zigomanis to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday for future considerations.

The 27-year-old Zigomanis had 14 goals and nine assists in 75 games for the Coyotes in 2006-07, but had just two goals and one assist in 33 games last season. He was placed on waivers last week, went unclaimed and was assigned to San Antonio in the AHL.

Zigomanis, a second-round draft pick of Carolina in 2001, has 19 goals and 14 assists in 167 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, Coyotes and St. Louis Blues.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
