LOS ANGELES -- The Penguins tonight acquired the rights to defenseman Dan Hamhuis from Philadelphia for a third-round draft pick in 2011.
Hamhuis, 27, is eligible to become a free agent next Friday unless the Penguins can negotiate a contract.
The Flyers just last week acquired Hamhuis' rights in a trade for defenseman Ryan Parent.
The trade came at the conclusion of the first round of the NHL draft.
