PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Panthers have acquired forward Marcel Goc from the Florida Panthers and forward Lee Stempniak from the Calgary Flames in exchange for draft picks.
Goc had 11 goals and 12 assists in 62 games this season for the Panthers, and the 31-year-old Stempniak had five goals and 18 assists in 52 games with Calgary. The additions give the Penguins some needed depth along their bottom two lines, which have been decimated by injuries this season.
Pittsburgh sent a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick in the 2015 draft to Florida in exchange for Goc, while the Flames received a 2014 third-round pick for Stempniak.
To help make room on the roster, the Metropolitan Division-leading Penguins assigned forward Chuck Kobasew to Wilkes Barre-Scranton of the AHL.
