Penguins, Senators swap minor leaguers in 4-player deal
The Pittsburgh Penguins made a minor-league trade Wednesday, sending winger Tobias Lindberg and defenseman Stefan Elliott to Ottawa for center Ben Sexton and defenseman Macoy Erkamps.
Sexton, 27, is the son of former Penguins amateur scouting director Randy Sexton. A 5-foot-11 Clarkson grad, he played two NHL games with the Senators last season. This year, he has no goals and nine assists in 17 AHL games with Belleville.
Erkamps, 23, has been in the ECHL with Brampton this season.
Lindberg, acquired by the Penguins in the Derick Brassard trade last season, has two goals and six points in 15 games in Wilkes-Barre this season.
Elliott, a 27-year-old signed by the Penguins in July after two seasons in Europe, had a goal and eight points in 20 AHL games.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton also acquired Ryan Scarfo, a rookie winger out of Union College playing on an AHL deal.
