Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins made another move
towards bolstering their forward depth at Wednesday's trade deadline,
acquiring right wing Lee Stempniak from the Calgary Flames for a third-round
pick in this year's draft.
A nine-year veteran with 616 regular-season games of NHL experience, Stempniak
provides the Penguins with a seasoned two-way forward who has compiled 146
goals and 330 points over his career. The 31-year-old registered eight goals
and 15 assists in 52 games with the Flames this season.
Stempniak has surpassed the 25-goal mark twice during his career, netting a
personal-best 28 in 2009-10 and 27 while with St. Louis in 2006-07. The New
York native will be competing for his fifth team, having previously played for
Toronto and Phoenix in addition to the Flames and Blues.
He joins a Pittsburgh team that added checking center Marcel Goc in a trade
with Florida earlier on Wednesday.
