The Dallas Stars announced Sunday the trade of veteran forward Brenden Morrow to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
"Brenden Morrow has represented everything we could ever ask for in a Dallas Star over the past 14 years, giving his heart and soul to this franchise," said general manager Joe Nieuwendyk in a written statement. "On behalf of the entire Dallas Stars organization, we wish Brenden nothing but the best going forward and thank him sincerely for his years of service."
Morrow, 34, has spent his entire NHL career with the Stars; he has served as the team's captain for half of his tenure.
In exchange for Morrow, the Stars get defenseman Joe Morrow and a 2013 NHL draft pick from the Penguins.
Joe Morrow, 20, has not yet played in an NHL game. The Edmonton native has spent this season with the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins in the American Hockey League, scoring 15 points over 57 games.
