Penguins pick up Jussi Jokinen from Carolina in exchange for conditional draft pick

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins are adding another veteran forward for the playoff run.

The Penguins have acquired Jussi Jokinen from the Carolina Hurricanes for a conditional sixth- or seventh-round pick in this year's NHL Entry Draft.

Jokinen has 11 points (six goals, five assists) in 33 games this season.

Pittsburgh has landed forwards Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and defenceman Douglas Murray in deals over the last two weeks.

The Penguins enter play Wednesday night with a five-point lead on second-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference standings.

Jokinen has recorded 346 points (121-225) in 569 career regular-season NHL games with Carolina, Tampa Bay and Dallas.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
