Since being acquired at the March 4 trade deadline from the Anaheim Ducks, Moen has been a major factor in the Sharks lineup. The 26-year-old scored the game-winning goal on March 15 at Honda Center and picked up a short handed goal and an assist on March 10 at Minnesota.

This season, Moen has combined for 159 hits with Anaheim and San Jose. He also caught the attention of Sharks fans when he and Phoenix’s Daniel Winnik
had a confrontation in San Jose’s 3-2 win on March 28.
Moen was originally drafted by the Calgary Flames in 2000 (5th round, 155 overall). The native of Stewart Valley, Saskatchewan spent time in the Western Hockey League and American Hockey League before being signed as a free agent by Chicago in 2002. He was then traded to Anaheim in 2005, but missed the majority of the 2005-06 recovering from knee and shoulder injuries.
In 356 NHL games, Moen has registered 55 points (28 goals and 22 assists). He played a big role in Anaheim’s 2007 Stanley Cup Champion as he had seven goals in 21 games.
