SHARKS TRADE FOR ADIN HILL
In a complete about-face from the social media posts proclaiming that Josef Korenar was "going nowhere" following a contract signing days prior, the San Jose Sharks trade away the goaltender and a 2022 second-round draft pick to the Arizona Coyotes to acquire goaltender Adin Hill.
Adin Hill was a promising up-and-coming netminder for the Coyotes and the fan-favorite to take over the starting job in the crease. Hill was drafted in the 3rd round (76th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft and has an impressive .909 save percentage in his four-year career at Arizona.
Despite only playing in 49 NHL games, Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson feels that the club has found a key piece in addressing the goaltending issue in San Jose. Doug Wilson complemented Hill's ability to make saves in high danger scoring areas and expects the goaltender to make a challenge for the starting job between the pipes.
