Share with others:
The Penguins have traded the negotiating rights to forwards Ryan Malone and Gary Roberts to Tampa Bay for a conditional draft choice.
The draft choice is supposed to be a fourth-rounder unless Malone signs with the Lightning, in which case it becomes a third-rounder.
Malone and Roberts are two of 12 players from the Penguins' major-league roster who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents Tuesday.
