SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have found their starting goaltender for next season, acquiring Martin Jones in a trade with the Boston Bruins.
The Sharks sent a 2016 first-round pick and unsigned forward prospect Sean Kuraly to the Bruins for Jones on Tuesday.
Jones had a short tenure in Boston, having been dealt from the Los Angeles Kings to the Bruins last Friday during the draft in a package for left wing Milan Lucic.
Finding a No. 1 goalie had been one of the top priorities for the Sharks this off-season as they look to get to the post-season after having their 10-year playoff run snapped this past season.
