The San Jose Sharks acquired goaltender Martin Jones from the Boston Bruins on Tuesday in exchange for a 2016 first-round draft selection and unsigned draft pick Sean Kuraly.
The Sharks also announced that the team issued qualifying offers to goaltender Aaron Dell and forward Daniil Tarasov but did not extend offers to goalie JP Anderson, defenseman Taylor Doherty and forwards Eriah Hayes and Rylan Schwartz, making the latter four unrestricted free agents.
In another move, the Sharks re-signed defenseman Brenden Dillon to a five-year contract.
The 25-year-old Jones was with the Bruins just a short time after he was obtained in a trade on draft day in June with the Los Angeles Kings.
Jones played in 34 career NHL games with the Kings and had a 16-11-2 record with a 1.99 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage. Last season, he was 4-5-2 with a 2.25 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage with three shutouts.
During the 2013-14 season, Jones tied an NHL record with eight consecutive victories to start a career and also was the first goaltender in league history to give up an average of fewer than one goal in his first eight games..
Jones played for Canada’s gold-medal team in the 2015 world championships and logged a 2-0 record with a 1.50 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
“Martin was at the top of our list of players that we had targeted,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. “We’re extremely excited to have him on board.”
Kuraly, 22, was drafted in the fifth round by the Sharks in 2011 but did not sign with the team. He will be a senior at Miami University in the fall.
Last season for Miami, Kuraly had 19 goals and 29 points in 40 games. He has 120 career points in 118 games for the RedHawks. Kuraly also played on the U.S. gold-medal team in the 2013 World Junior Championships in Russia, contributing one goal and two assists.
The 24-year-old Dillon had 10 points and 77 penalty minutes in 80 regular-season games for the Dallas Stars and the Sharks in 2014-15. In 209 career games with the Stars and Sharks, Dillon has 35 points and 228 penalty minutes.
Earlier, defenseman Adam McQuaid agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Boston Bruins.
The extension runs through the 2018-19 season at an NHL cap figure of 2.75 million per year.
McQuaid, a second-round pick in 2005, joined the Bruins via trade in 2007, when Boston sent the Columbus Blue Jackets a fifth-round pick.
He competed in 63 games last season, recording one goal and posting six assists with 85 penalty minutes. In total, the 28-year-old blueliner has played in 283 games at the NHL level — all with Boston — with nine goals and 34 assists, while amassing 430 penalty minutes.
McQuaid has 54 NHL playoff games under his belt with the Bruins, where he has posted two goals and six assists with a combined plus-13 rating in 54 matchups. McQuaid was a member of the Bruins’ 2011 Stanley Cup winning team.
