Pens get Rangers' Moore in three-team deal with Preds

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.
