Bulletin: Ottawa acquires Matt Cullen from Carolina for Alexandre Picard and Ottawa\u2019s 2nd-round draft pick in 2010
OTTAWA - Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray announced today the club has acquired centre Matt Cullen from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for defenceman Alexandre Picard and Ottawa’s second-round draft choice in the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

Cullen, 33, is currently in his 12th NHL season, and his fourth with Carolina. In 59 games this season, he has scored 12 goals, while adding 28 assists and 26 penalty minutes.

In 859 career NHL games with Anaheim, Florida, the N.Y. Rangers and Carolina, Cullen has scored 165 goals, added 288 assists and 384 penalty minutes. He also recorded 28 points (eight goals and 20 assists) and 32 penalty minutes in 57 career playoff games. He won a Stanley Cup with the Hurricanes in 2006.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Cullen was Anaheim’s second-round pick (35th overall) in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He was acquired by Carolina from the Rangers in exchange for Andrew Hutchinson, Joe Barnes and a third-round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft on July 17, 2007.

The native of Virginia, Minn. has represented the United States internationally on two occasions, playing in the world hockey championship in 1999 and 2004. He was also on Team U.S.A.’s taxi squad at the 2006 Winter Olympics, but did not see game action.

Picard, 24, was acquired by the Senators from the Tampa Bay Lightning along with Filip Kuba and a first-round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft for Andrej Meszaros on Aug. 29, 2008. Picard has scored four goals, while adding 11 assists and 20 penalty minutes in 45 games with the Senators this season. In 184 career NHL games, he has recorded 16 goals, 41 assists and registered 59 penalty minutes.
