Penguins acquire Jussi Jokinen, Hurricanes get conditional draft pick

The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired forward Jussi Jokinen and the Carolina Hurricanes will receive a conditional draft pick in return, according to NHL.com on Wednesday. The deal was agreed upon hours before the league's 3 p.m. EST trade deadline.

According to tweets from TSN's Bob McKenzie, Carolina would get a sixth round pick from Pittsburgh if Jokinen plays 50 percent of the Penguins' playoff games this season. Pittsburgh would also need to win the Stanley Cup for the sixth round pick to be sent to Carolina. If he plays 25 percent of the Penguins' playoffs games this season and goes to the Stanley Cup final, Carolina would get a seventh round pick. The Washington Post also reported, citing McKenzie, that Carolina would retain some of Jokinen's $3 million salary.

Jokinen, 30, has six goals and 11 points in 33 games so far this season. He had one of his best seasons in 2009-10 when he scored 30 goals and recorded 65 points. Over the past two seasons, he has accumulated 52 points and 46 points, respectively. The Finnish forward was drafted by the Dallas Stars in 2001 and has also spent time playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning before signing with the Hurricanes and now the Penguins.

For a career, he has started 569 games, recording 121 goals and 346 points. In 2009, he helped the Hurricanes to the Eastern Conference Finals, and has nine goals and 15 points in 27 career Stanley Cup playoff games.
