Goc, according to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN and TSN, was received in exchange for two draft picks.
Penguins get Marcel Goc from Panthers for two picks…

However, both Rossi and Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review are skeptical that Pittsburgh could be setting another trade up.
The Penguins have acquired Marcel Goc, and, I’m pretty sure they aren’t done yet.

Goc, 30, is listed as a center, and because Pittsburgh’s been heavily tied to Vancouver Canucks’ forward Ryan Kesler, both Rossi and Yohe may be on to something here.
In 62 games this season for Florida, Goc has collected 23 points (11G, 12A) and skated to a minus-7 rating – per hockeydb.com.
Stay tuned, this could get interesting.
