The Penguins have acquired Pierre-Olivier Joseph and Alex Galchenyuk from the Coyotes for Phil Kessel, Dane Birks and a 2020 fourth-round pick.
Joseph was selected No.23 overall in 2017 and is coming off of a 47-point (9G / 38A) campaign in the QMJHL. The 19-year-old has good size (6-foot-2, 168 lbs), terrific mobility and puck skills that should make him a point-producer in the NHL in the near future. With veterans clogging up the Penguins’ blueline, Joseph is likely headed to the AHL to start the 2019-20 season.
The Coyotes select Pierre-Olivier Joseph with the 23rd overall pick.
