The Penguins have landed Justin Schultz.
The defenseman, who had fallen out of favor in Edmonton, was acquired by Pittsburgh in exchange for a third-round draft pick in 2016.
Schultz is on a one-year, $3.9 million contract. As part of the deal, the Oilers will retain 50 percent of his salary.
The 25-year-old was third among Oiler defensemen with 10 points in 45 games this season and was fourth in average ice time per game (20:07).
Schultz is not expected to join the Penguins until Wednesday or Thursday due to immigration.
Originally a 2008 second-round pick of the Anaheim Ducks, Schultz has appeared in 248 games with Edmonton over parts of four seasons scoring 28 goals and 101 points while registering a minus-78 rating.
Per GeneralFanager, the Oilers now have nine draft picks for June’s draft.
