The San Jose Sharks acquired forward Ben Eager from the Atlanta Thrashers in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2011 Entry Draft.

The 26-year-old Eager was part of the Chicago Blackhawks' Stanley Cup championship last season. He was dealt to the Thrashers during the offseason and had 3 goals and 7 assists in 34 games.

Eager just finished serving a four-game suspension for his blindside punch to the face of Toronto's Colby Armstrong in game on Jan. 7.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
