The move marked the second of the day for Streit. Earlier, the Flyers dealt Streit to Tampa Bay for Valtteri Filppula and two draft picks.
The Flyers also agreed to retain 4.7 percent of Streit’s salary cap hit in the deal. Meaning, the Flyers are partially paying for a player now on the Penguins’ roster.
Streit appeared in 49 games with the Philadelphia Flyers this season. The 39-year-old defenseman has scored five goals and added 16 assists.
