The Oilers have acquired defenceman Joni Pitkanen and forward Geoff Sanderson from the Philadelphia Flyers for blue-liner Jason Smith and forward Joffrey Lupul.

Pitkanen should provide a major boost to Edmonton's power-play, having posted a career-high 43 points in 77 games with the Flyers last season.

Sanderson, a two-time all-star, had 11 goals and 18 assists in 58 games with Philadelphia last year.

The Oilers made two other moves on Sunday, signing free-agent defencemen Dick Tarnstrom and Denis Grebeshkov to one-year contracts.
