PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired forward Jussi Jokinen from the Carolina Hurricanes.

In exchange, the Pens gave up a conditional 6th or 7th round draft pick in the deal.

The 30-year-old Jonkinen was placed on waivers and cleared a little more than a week before the deadline.

It’s reported that the Hurricanes are believed to be taking back some salary in the transaction.

In 33 games with the Hurricanes this season, Jokinen has scored six goals, and added five assists.

The former sixth-round draft pick is in the second year of a three-year, $9 million deal.

Jokinen has scored 121 goals and 225 assists in 569 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning.
