The Vegas Golden Knights acquired forward Teddy Blueger from the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday in exchange for defenseman Peter DiLiberatore.
The Penguins also get a 2024 third-round pick in the deal. DiLiberatore has yet to play in the NHL.
Blueger, 28, has 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in 45 games this season. He has 92 career points in four-plus seasons with the Penguins, who selected him in the second round of the 2012 draft. He made his NHL debut in the 2018-19 season.
“We are grateful for everything that Teddy has done for this team and the organization over the past 10 years,” Pittsburgh GM Ron Hextall said in a release. “He was one of our most reliable penalty killers and a consummate professional. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”
DiLiberatore, 22, is signed through the 2022-23 season and has an average annual value of $925,000 at the NHL level. He will report to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.
Vegas drafted him in the sixth round of the 2018 draft.
