Pens trade Philip Samuelsson to Arizona for Rob Klinkhammer

Given the Penguins injury situation and an otherwise underwhelming list of forwards in Wilkes-Barre, it was only a matter of time before the Pens moved some of the surplus they have on defense.  That move came today when Philip Samuelsson was traded to Arizona for left winger Rob Klinkhammer. Klinkhammer, 28, is pretty big at 6’3″, 220 pounds and will provide some much needed...
