SAN JOSE, Calif.
-- The San Jose Sharks and Minnesota Wild have made their third deal in six weeks.

This time, the Sharks have acquired center James Sheppard, the ninth overall pick in the 2006 National Hockey League Entry Draft, in exchange for a third round draft pick in 2013. San Jose subsequently signed the restricted free agent.

"We liked him very much in his draft year and he's a big, strong player with good upside," Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson said.

Sheppard missed all of last season due to a knee injury suffered in the offseason and the 23-year-old has posted 11 goals and 38 assists in 224 NHL games. Sheppard, who is 6-foot-1 and 205 pounds, went directly from junior hockey to the Wild in 2007-08 following a stellar final season in the QMJHL with Cape Breton. In 2006-07, Sheppard scored 33 goals and 96 points in 56 games with the Screaming Eagles.

Sheppard's best NHL season came in 2008-09. In 82 games, he set career highs with five goals, 19 assists and 24 points.
