SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has acquired a first round 2020 draft selection (Tampa's selection) and forward Anthony Greco from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for forward Barclay Goodrow and a 2020 third round draft selection (previously acquired from Philadelphia).
"Barclay has been an extremely valuable, team-first player to our organization for the past six seasons," said Wilson. "His story of perseverance and hard work from being an undrafted free agent to being one of the most versatile players in the National Hockey League has been a pleasure to watch. You hate to lose players like this, but this is an important step in acquiring valuable assets that can be utilized by our club moving forward."
Goodrow has posted 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists) in 62 games with the Sharks this season.
In 268 NHL games with San Jose, Goodrow has recorded 71 points (26 goals, 45 assists).
Greco was playing with Syracuse (AHL) after recently being acquired by Tampa from the Florida Panthers organization, where he signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2017.
In 40 games with Syracuse and Springfield this season, Greco has posted 20 points (ten goals, ten assists).
