The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired Nathan Beaulieu from the Winnipeg Jets for a conditional seventh-round draft pick on Monday, Sportsnet can confirm.

Beaulieu, 29, has been on long-term injury reserve with a lower-body injury since March 9 and is in the final season of a two-year, $2.5-million deal. He has four assists in 24 games this season.

According to Capfriendly, the trade has "no immediate impact" on either team's usable LTIR pool remaining.

In 419 games over 10 NHL seasons with Winnipeg, Buffalo and Montreal, Beaulieu has totaled 12 goals, 82 assists and 94 points. 

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound defenseman’s best season was 2016-17 with Montreal, where he set career highs for goals (4), assists (24), points (28), hits (65) and blocked shots (102).
