The San Jose Sharks added a potential No. 1 goaltender Tuesday by acquiring Martin Jones from the Boston Bruins, who traded for him on Friday.

"Martin was at the top of our list of players that we had targeted," general manager Doug Wilson told the Sharks website. "We're extremely excited to have him on board."

San Jose traded a first-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft and forward prospect Sean Kuraly to get Jones, who was traded by the Los Angeles Kings to Boston at the 2015 draft as part of the package for forward Milan Lucic.

"I've never been traded before, so this is all new to me," Jones said Tuesday, according to the San Jose Mercury News. "It's exciting. It's pretty sad when you're leaving a place like L.A. where I formed a lot of good relationships, but I'm looking forward to taking on a bigger responsibility and playing in San Jose."

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames wasted little time signing defenseman Dougie Hamilton.

After acquiring Hamilton from the Boston Bruins at the 2015 NHL Draft on Friday, the Flames announced a multiyear extension for the pending restricted free agent Tuesday.

"I didn’t know I was going to be a Flame until, I guess, today, or when I was traded to them," Hamilton said. "It’s something that your life can change pretty quick and it’s part of the business and everything. For me, I’m looking forward to it. I’ve heard a lot of good things and some text messages from players around the League and stuff like that, that have told me how nice it is there. I’m going to fit in well.

"There’s a lot of things that continue to excite me about the organization, the team and the city. It’s all just building for me. Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of time left in the summer and I can’t go there and start playing right now."

It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy.  Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up.
