The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired forward Cory Stillman from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Ryan Carter and a fifth-round 2011 draft pick.
Stillman, 37, was a member of the Canes' 2006 Stanley Cup champions. He also won a Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004.
"He's still a good player and he gives us more depth and balance up front," Canes general manager Jim Rutherford said. "He should be able to help up offensively and on the power play.
"He's won two Cups. He's a hockey guy. He understands the game. He has experience. On top of that, he still plays well and he's a very smart player. Going down the stretch of the season he can really add something to our team."
Stillman has played in 44 games for the Panthers this season, with seven goals and 16 assists. A year ago, he had 15 goals and 22 assists in 58 games for Florida.
In the Canes' 2006 run to the Cup, Stillman had 21 goals and 55 assists (76 points) in 72 games. Ten of the goals and 24 assists were on the power play.
In all, Stillman had 149 points in 170 games for the Canes from 2005-2008. He was traded with Mike Commodore to the Ottawa Senators in February 2008 for Joe Corvo and Patrick Eaves.
Rutherford did not rule out making another move before the Monday trade deadline but said the Canes would not be dealing away any of their young prospects.
"That's one thing I do not want to do," he said.
Stillman will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
