Via the Pens:
The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired a 2013 seventh-round draft pick from the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Eric Tangradi, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
This essentially guarantees that Tangradi will score a huge game-winner against the Pens the next time they play in Winnipeg that will make Jets fans go nuts.
