The Winnipeg Jets acquired forward Jiri Tlusty from the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday in exchange for a third-round draft pick in 2016 and a conditional choice in 2015.

Tlutsy, 26, spent parts of six seasons with Carolina, recording 145 points (76 goals) in 322 games with the Hurricanes. He had career-highs in goals (23) and points (38) during the lockout shortened 2013 season.

This season, Tlusty has 23 points (13 goals) in 52 games.

The conditional pick will be in the fifth round if Winnipeg qualifies for this year's playoffs, or the sixth round if they do not.
