Canes acquire Bergeron from Lightning

The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired defenseman Marc-Andre Bergeron from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for right wing Adam Hall and a 2013 seventh-round pick.

Bergeron was taken off the ice midway through the Lightning's morning skate earlier today, upon which he found out about the deal.

"Marc-Andre is a skilled, veteran defenseman who has made a good career out of helping teams on the powerplay," said Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford.

Bergeron, 32, is in his 10th NHL season and has earned five points in 12 games for the Lightning this season.

The Trois-Rivieres, Que., native has totaled 82 goals, 149 assists (231 points) and 209 penalty minutes in 477 career NHL games with Edmonton, the New York Islanders, Anaheim, Minnesota, Montreal and Tampa Bay.

Hall, 32, has registered four assists and 23 penalty minutes in 26 games with the Hurricanes this season.

The native of Kalamazoo, Michigan, was originally drafted by the Nashville Predators in the second-round (52nd overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.
