Canucks, Capitals swap Matts

With Cristobal Huet and Sergei Fedorov already in the mix, the Washington Capitals added anohter veteran player acquiring forward Matt Cooke from the Vancouver Canucks for left winger Matt Pettinger.
Cooke is a pending UFA, meaning he's the third rental to join the Capitals so far, while Pettinger is under contract this season and next for a $1-million cap hit.

Pettinger has had a 20-goal season in the past, but has just two goals and seven points in 56 games this season as he has filled mostly a checking and penalty killing role in Washington.

Cooke's well-known as one of the league's real superpests.
