SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -The Florida Panthers acquired defenseman Magnus Johansson from the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday for a seventh-round pick in the 2009 NHL draft.
The 34-year-old Johansson is in his rookie season in the NHL. He played in 18 games for the Blackhawks, recording four assists but no goals.
``Magnus is a mobile defenseman that knows how to move the puck quickly and join in on the offensive attack,'' Panthers coach Jacques Martin said. ``He will also provide support on our power play.''
Johansson played in the Swedish Elite League from 2004-07 for his hometown Linkoping squad.
