PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forward
Marian Hossa from Atlanta in a trade that sent forwards Colby
Armstrong and Eric Christensen to the Thrashers.
The Penguins made the move to add another proven scorer to
Sidney Crosby's line once their star returns from an ankle injury.
The Penguins also get forward Pascal Dupuis while the Thrashers
acquire prospect Angelo Esposito, Pittsburgh's first-round pick in
the 2007 draft, and a first-round draft pick.
In a separate trade, the Penguins acquired defenseman Hal Gill
from Toronto for second- and fifth-round draft picks.
