The Covington News - - Sports -

PITTS­BURGH— The Pitts­burgh Pen­guins, des­per­ate to add an­other scorer to Sid­ney Crosby’s line, ac­quired for­ward Mar­ian Hossa from At­lanta in a trade Tues­day that sent for­wards Colby Arm­strong and Eric Christensen to the Thrash­ers.

With Toronto’s Mats Sundin off the mar­ket af­ter re­fus­ing to waive his no-trade clause, Hossa was the big­gest name avail­able at the trad­ing dead­line. Hossa is a five-time All-Star who has 26 goals and 30 as­sists in 60 games this sea­son.
