Penguins Complete Deadline Dealing By Acquiring 6th Round Pick For Playoff Run

Going into the trade deadline, I predicted the Pens would acquire a veteran defenseman, a winger, and a random Craig Adams-type depth pickup, so I thought one more Pens deal was on its way after the Ponikarovky acquision, and boy was I right:

The Maple Leafs and Penguins have completed their second trade in as many days as Toronto has sent a sixth round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry draft for defenceman Chris Peluso.

The 23-year old Peluso is playing at Bemidji State and was originally selected in the seventh round, 194th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry draft.

Dayyyuumnnnn!!! That Ray Shero, man, he’s becoming notorious for these deadline-day blockbusters.

To make room for the 6th round pick on the roster in the playoffs, the Pens are double-benching Jay McKee.
