The Penguins have acquired forward Jussi Jokinen from Carolina for a conditional draft choice.

Jokinen was on waivers last week, but went unclaimed.

Jokinen, who turned 30 two days ago, has six goals and five assists in 33 games this season.

His most productive season was 2009-10, when he had 30 goals and 35 assists.

He is a candidate to play on the Penguins' fourth line, and is a good faceoff man, going 168-115 this season.
