Penguins Trade, Agree to Terms with G Mattias Modig to a Two-Year Entry Level Contract
The Pittsburgh Penguins agreed to terms with Mattias Modig to a two-year entry level contract after acquiring the goaltender from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for a 2010 sixth-round draft pick, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

Modig, 23, played the last four seasons with his hometown team Lulea HF of the Swedish Elite League. He has carried the bulk of the netminding duties in the last two years, playing 74 games and posting a 2.35 goals-against average with a .913 save percentage and six shutouts.

The 6-foot, 163-pound goaltender was originally drafted by Anaheim in the fourth round (121st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

The Penguins traded a sixth-round pick to Anaheim, which was obtained from Montreal. Pittsburgh now has seven draft picks remaining in 2010 with a first-, third-, fourth-, fifth-, two sixth- and a seventh-round selection.
