Sharks acquire F Tyler Kennedy from Penguins for 2nd-round pick, draft D Mirco Mueller in 1st

NEWARK, N.J. - The Pittsburgh Penguins' busy off-season continues as they traded forward Tyler Kennedy to the San Jose Sharks for a second-round pick in Sunday's NHL draft.

The Penguins got the 50th overall pick for the rights to Kennedy, who is a restricted free agent.

Kennedy, 26, had six goals and five assists in 46 regular-season games and two goals and three assists in nine playoff games.

"Tyler is a highly-competitive forward who plays with speed and has a history of scoring big goals," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. "He has played in a lot of playoff games over the last past five seasons, won a Stanley Cup and we think he fits in perfectly with our group and how we want to play the game."

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
