The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired defenseman Derek Joslin from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for future considerations.

Joslin, 23, has 1 goal, 4 points and a minus-2 rating in 17 games this season.

"Derek is a young defenseman who will add depth to our organization," said Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. "He shows a good skill level and plays a solid two-way game."

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
