More on Halpern

The price for Jeff Halpern, to Tampa Bay, is Teddy Purcell and a third-round pick. Not sure if the pick is conditional or not, but it doesn’t appear so at the moment.

Halpern turns 34 in May and will provide depth on the third or fourth line, as well as kill penalties. He has leadership ability as well, as he was the captain of the United States’ 2008 World Championships team.
