Looks like the Penguins are making some moves. They are sending defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to The Stars in return for a 2019 Fourth-Round Draft Pick. Check out the full press release below or on Penguins.com.
Penguins Acquire a 2019 Fourth-Round Draft Pick from the Dallas Stars in Exchange for Jamie Oleksiak
The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired a 2019 fourth-round draft pick from the Dallas Stars in exchange for Jamie Oleksiak, it was announced today by Penguins executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
The Penguins will now own three fourth-round selections in the 2019 NHL Draft – their own choice, the Buffalo Sabres’ pick and this pick acquired today, which originally belonged to the Minnesota Wild.
Last year, when the Penguins acquired Oleksiak from the Stars, the Pens traded a fourth-round pick to Dallas. That pick was going to be the higher pick between Pittsburgh’s original fourth-round pick and Minnesota’s fourth-round pick. Pittsburgh had acquired the Wild’s pick in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes.
Below is a look at the choices the Penguins currently own in the 2019 NHL Draft:
Round # of Picks
*The Penguins currently own three picks. They’ll have their own pick, the Sabres’ fourth-round pick and the Minnesota Wild’s fourth-round selection. The Sabres’ pick is conditional and could become a third-round pick if certain conditions are met.
**The Pens own the Vegas Golden Knights’ selection in addition to Pittsburgh’s own choice.
NOTE: Pittsburgh traded its third-round pick to the Ottawa Senators in the three-team deal that added Derick Brassard; the Penguins sent their sixth-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes in a trade last season.
