The Pittsburgh Penguins are not satisfied with winning 12 games in a row and taking charge in the Eastern Conference.
General manager Ray Shero wants to make sure his team is Stanley Cup-viable when the regular season comes to an end. He took a solid step to make that happen when he traded for veteran winger Brenden Morrow (per CBCnews.ca).
The Penguins sent the Dallas Stars defense prospect Joe Morrow (no relation) and a fifth-round draft pick in 2013. The Penguins also received a third-round draft pick from the Stars.
Morrow has been with the Stars throughout his 13-year career. He waived a no-trade clause and will play a vital role for the Penguins.
