The Pittsburgh Penguins have acquired defenseman Ty Smith and a 2023 third-round draft pick from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for defenseman John Marino.
This was announced today by Ron Hextall, General Manager of Penguin.
Smith is signed during the 2022-23 season and has an average annual worth of $863,333.
Smith joins the Penguins after his second NHL season, appearing in 66 games and recording five goals, 15 assists and 20 points. He averaged 17 1/2 minutes of play time per game.
He has played in 114 NHL games over two seasons, and has recorded seven goals, 36 assists and 43 points.
A native of Lloydminster, Alberta, Smith was named to the NHL’s All Rookie Team for the 2020–21 season after leading all rookie Blueliners in assists, points and power-play points.
New Jersey’s acquisition of a third-round pick in 2023 gives Pittsburgh nine selections in the draft, one from each of the first six rounds and three in the seventh.
