The Oiler organization is sad to see Jordan go but an opportunity to acquire a young franchise Defenseman arouse and we felt the deal needed to be done. We feel Kris will anchor the defense with Justin for years to come. We know feel our organizational depth at the defense position is near the top of the league.
Confirmed.

The Penguins did not want to see Kris go, but felt that they were getting sufficient depth on defense back that, together with their extensive prospect pool, will allow them to continue to field an excellent defense for years to come. Jordan fills an incredible need for us and we are extremely excited to have him aboard. Having the depth to play two all-star wingers alongside our franchise centers is a prospect that we have been waiting for years for.
