Blues-Penguins swap minor league defensemen
In a trade of defensemen, the Pittsburgh Penguins acquired Steve Wagner from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Nate Guenin. Both players are currently in the American Hockey League.

Wagner, 25, has not made an appearance with St. Louis this season. In 46 games with the Peoria Rivermen, he has 3 goals and 15 points. In 46 NHL games with the Blues between 2007-2009, Wagner (6-2, 200) has 4 goals and 12 points.

Guenin, 27, has 3 goals and 5 points in 41 games with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. He was recalled by Pittsburgh on Nov. 16 and appeared in two games. Guenin (6-2, 210) has made 14 NHL appearances with Philadelphia and Pittsburgh from 2006-2010, recording 2 assists. He was the third Pittsburgh native to play for the Penguins in the last three seasons, joining Ryan Malone and Bill Thomas.
Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin
