NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Dominic Moore was on the move Wednesday afternoon.

The Nashville Predators acquired Moore from the New York Rangers, then dealt the center to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Predators parted with right wing Adam Hall to pry Moore from the Rangers before sending Moore and left wing Libor Pivko to the Penguins for a third-round pick in 2007.

Moore, 25, played in all 82 games for the Rangers last season, recording nine goals and nine assists. A penalty-killing specialist, he finished second on the team in shorthanded time on the ice. He has nine goals and 12 assists in 87 career games, all with the Rangers.

Hall, also 25, had 14 goals and 15 assists in 75 games with the Predators in 2005-06. He has recorded 43 goals and 42 assists in 234 career games after breaking into the league with Nashville in 2002-03.

A 26-year-old from the Czech Republic, Pivko had 12 goals and 57 assists in 69 games with Milwaukee of the American Hockey League this past season. He has played in one game in his NHL career, going scoreless for Nashville at Colorado on November 24, 2003.
