Pens Acquire Forward Jussi Jokinen For Conditional Pick


The Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they have acquired forward Jussi Jokinen from the Carolina Hurricanes for a conditional 2013 sixth or seventh round draft choice – according to the Pens’ website.

Jokinen, 30, has registered 11 points (6G, 5A) in 33 games this year.

Drafted in the sixth round (192nd overall) of the 2001 NHL Draft, Jokinen scored a career-high 30 goals not too long ago with the Canes during the 2009-10 season.

Jokinen’s contract is said to be slightly absorbed by Carolina.
