The Carolina Hurricanes added another important piece Thursday, acquiring veteran forward Mark Recchi from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Recchi will serve as a worthy replacement for injured forward Erik Cole, who will miss the rest of the regular season after fracturing a vertebra in his neck less than a week ago. Cole already had a career-high before the injury.

The Hurricanes sent defenseman Niklas Nordgren, minor league forward Krys Kolanos and a second-round pick in 2007 to Pittsburgh.
