SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -The San Jose Sharks are standing pat at the trading deadline, believing they have the pieces in place to make a playoff run.
General manager Doug Wilson said he had a few discussions with other teams before Wednesday's trade deadline but did not see any deal that would improve his team.
Wilson made two deals before the Olympic break, acquiring defenseman Niclas Wallin from Carolina for a draft pick and sending enforcer Jody Shelley to the New York Rangers to create some salary cap room.
San Jose entered the day atop the Western Conference standings with 89 points, two points ahead of Chicago. The Sharks trail Washington by one point for the most in the NHL.
