Penguins bolster second line, acquire forward Brenden Morrow from Dallas

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The streaking Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forward Brenden Morrow from the Dallas Stars on Sunday to bolster the team's second line.

Pittsburgh sent defenceman Joe Morrow, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 draft, and a fifth-round choice this year to Dallas in exchange for Morrow and the Stars' third-round pick in the draft.

The 34-year-old Morrow has 243 goals and 285 assists in 835 games, all with Dallas. Morrow will become a free agent at the end of the season. He waived his no-trade clause to move to the Penguins.

The Penguins are hoping to pair Morrow with former Dallas teammate James Neal and reigning NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin on the team's second line. Malkin remains out with an upper body injury but could return later this week.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
