PANTHERS MAKE SOME MOVES: Acquire Pirri From Blackhawks, Deal Selleck

The Panthers were busy on the trade front Sunday, making two different deals.

Florida acquired former second round pick (2009) Brandon Pirri from Chicago for Florida’s third round draft pick in 2014 and its fifth-round selection in 2015.

Pirri is expected to join the team in Boston for Tuesday's game against the Bruins.

The 22-year-old has played in 35 games over parts of three seasons with the Blackhawks, scoring six goals with seven assists. Pirri was with Chicago's AHL affiliate in Rockford, Ill., at the time of the deal and is a past winner of the AHL scoring title as well as its All-Star Game MVP.

Florida also dealt AHL winger Eric Selleck to St. Louis for forward Mark Mancari. The Panthers sent Doug Janik to the AHL's Chicago Wolves for future considerations.

Mancari, 28, had nine goals and 22 assists for the Wolves this season. Mancari has played in 42 NHL games for Buffalo and Vancouver; his last NHL action came over six games with the Canucks in 2011-12.
