The Penguins have a trade in place to acquire forward Brenden Morrow from Dallas.

Morrow has a no-trade clause in his contract and must waive it before the deal could be finalized.

There are reports that the Boston Bruins were also in the running, and that Morrow chose between joining the Penguins and Bruins in order to waive his no-trade.

TSN.ca reported that the Penguins would send defenseman Joseph Morrow, their first-round draft choice in 2010, to the Stars in the deal. The Penguins will also send a fifth-round pick in 2013, while Pittsburgh also receives Dallas’ third-round pick this summer.

Brenden Morrow, the Stars’ captain, has six goals and five assists in 29 games this season. He is in the final year of his six-year contract worth an annual average value of $4.1 million.

He has spent his entire 12-year career with the Stars. In 835 career games he has 243 goals and 285 assists.

Joe Morrow was playing with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, where he recorded four goals and 11 assists through 57 games this season.

The 20-year-old from Edmonton was drafted by the Pens in the first round, 23rd overall, of the 2011 Entry Draft.
