The Carolina Hurricanes have traded forward Jussi Jokinen to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange or a conditional draft pick, pending a trade call.

The 30-year-old Jokinen cleared was placed on waivers and cleared a little more than a week before the trade deadline.

The Hurricanes are believed to be taking back some salary in the transaction.

In 33 games with the Hurricanes this season, Jokinen has scored six goals and added five assists.
