Pittsburgh Receives: Jussi Jokinen
Note: Carolina has to eat some of Jokinen's salary (most likely this years salary, the Pens however will have to pay his salary for next season or buy him out).
Draft Pick Condition: If Jokinen plays in 25% of Pittsburgh's playoff games and the Penguins reach the Stanley Cup Finals, the Canes will receive a 7th round pick. If Jokinen plays in 50% of Pittsburgh's playoff games and the Penguins win the Stanley Cup; the Canes will receive a 6th round pick. If neither of these things happen, the Canes will not receive the draft pick.
We thank Jussi for his great service to our organization during the last five years.
This deal is important for our team’s financial flexibility moving forward
