Penguins, Hurricanes complete trade

Feb 1, 2008 - 4:51 AM PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- The Pittsburgh Penguins completed a minor trade Thursday, sending center Joe Jensen to the Carolina Hurricanes for left wing David Gove.

Gove was assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League, while Jensen will report to Carolina's AHL affiliate in Albany.

Signed by the Hurricanes as a free agent in August 2005, Gove made his NHL debut in 2005-06, recording an assist in one game. The 29-year-old native of Massachusetts also appeared in one contest with Carolina last season.

This campaign, Gove recorded eight goals and 15 assists in 45 games with Albany.

Jensen, 24, was an eighth-round pick of the Penguins in 2003. Yet to play in an NHL game, he registered two goals and two assists in 27 contests with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season.

A native of Plymouth, Minnesota, Jensen also notched four tallies and seven points in nine games with Wheeling of the ECHL in 2007-08.
