The Penguins have acquired forward Mike Zigomanis from Phoenix for considerations.

Zigomanis, 27, split last season between the Coyotes and San Antonio of the American Hockey League. In 33 games with Phoenix, he had two goals and an assist; he had 10 goals and 15 assists in 27 games with the AHL Rampage.

Zigomanis (6 foot 1, 195 pounds) was selected by Buffalo in the first round of the 1999 entry draft, but re-entered the draft in 2001 and was claimed by Carolina in the second round.

Zigomanis, who can kill penalties, has 19 goals and 14 assists in 167 career games with Phoenix and Carolina.

Also, center Jeff Taffe cleared waivers and was assigned to the Penguins' farm team in Wilkes-Barre.
