PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford has been attempting to acquire a top-six forward since the first month of the season. He found one in David Perron.

The Penguins traded forward Rob Klinkhammer and a first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft on Friday to the Edmonton Oilers for Perron, who led Edmonton with 28 goals last season. Perron will enter Pittsburgh's top-six forward group, which has been decimated by injury and illness the past two months.

"We were finally in position so that we could find a guy who could come in, help our forwards, give us more depth up front," Rutherford said. "He can play both wings comfortably. He's a right shot. He likes to play the left side, but based on our injury situation, we suspect he would start on the right side with us until we get our full team back, but we're very pleased we could make this addition today."

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Andrew Barroway's lifelong attraction to hockey began as a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers' "Broad Street Bullies" of the 1970s.

On Dec. 31, the NHL Board of Governors approved Barroway's purchase of a majority stake (51 percent) in the Arizona Coyotes, two days after they defeated the Flyers 4-2.

"My first game here was against the Flyers. Even though they were my team, I couldn't have been happier beating them," said Barroway, who was introduced as majority owner, chairman and governor of the Coyotes on Friday at Gila River Arena. "It was awesome. It was an easy transition and I have become a fan immediately.

"We want to build for the future here. We think there is tremendous opportunity and tremendous upside to this organization."

Getzlaf led all players with 20 points and 15 assists to power the Ducks (24-9-6, 54 points) to a 10-3-1 December and the top spot in the NHL standings. He registered points in 12 of 14 contests, highlighted by seven multi-point performances. That included an eight-game point streak from Dec. 12-28 (4-9—13), his eighth career run of at least eight games. Getzlaf's 20 December points were the most by a Ducks player in any calendar month since March 2011, when he also posted 20 (2-18—20). His total also set a franchise record for points in December, breaking the previous mark of 19 established by Paul Kariya in 1996 and matched by Teemu Selanne in 2006.

Friday, 01.02.2015 / 12:16 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to

Three months past his 20th birthday, Ryan Pulock is the youngest member of an already youthful Bridgeport Sound Tigers defensive corps.

Selected No. 15 by the New York Islanders at the 2013 NHL Draft, the Manitoba native came with a warning label: Highly offensive.

"You could see the potential [and] the upside," Sound Tigers coach Brent Thompson said of Pulock prior to his arrival in Bridgeport. "And you definitely can see his shot and the weapon that it is."

Over four seasons with Brandon in the Western Hockey League, Pulock scored 210 points in 261 regular-season games and 15 points in 24 playoff games. He finished among the Wheat Kings' top 10 scorers all four years, concluding his final season in Brandon 19 points ahead of the Wheat Kings' next-best defenseman.

Now in his rookie season in the American Hockey League, Pulock is adjusting to the new demands of professional hockey.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
