PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Forward Alex Kovalev is returning to Pittsburgh after the Penguins acquired him in a trade with the Ottawa Senators for a conditional draft pick.

The deal announced Thursday was Pittsburgh's second in four days as the team attempts to shore up a banged-up lineup that's minus 12 regulars.

The 38-year-old Kovalev is a 17-year NHL veteran, who played for the Penguins from 1998 through the 2002-03 season before being traded to Montreal.

In exchange, the Penguins gave up a seventh-round pick in this year's draft. It will turn into a sixth-round pick if Pittsburgh reaches the second round of the playoffs and Kovalev appears in at least 50 percent of the first-round games.

Kovalev has 14 goals and 13 assists in 54 games this season.
