Sharks Acquire A Fourth Round Selection in the 2013 NHL Draft From Chicago In Exchange for Center Michal Handzus
Michal Handzus

SAN JOSE, California -- San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has acquired a fourth round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for center Michal Handzus.

The fourth round selection in 2013 originally belonged to the Sharks and was previously acquired by Chicago on June 23, 2012. In that transaction, the Sharks acquired Chicago's fourth round selection in the 2012 NHL Draft (109th overall, Christophe Lalancette) in exchange for a seventh round selection in the 2012 NHL Draft and the fourth round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Handzus, 36, has posted two points (1-1=2) in 28 games this season for the Sharks. The 14-year NHL veteran has spent the last two seasons in San Jose, posting 26 points (8-18=26) in 95 games played. He also appeared in two playoff contests for the Sharks last season.

"Michal has been a tremendous veteran presence for our hockey club the last two seasons on and off the ice, especially in helping our younger players understand how to be a professional," said Wilson. "We wish all the best to Michal and his family and thank him for all his contributions in his time here."

In 939 career NHL games with St. Louis, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Jose, Handzus has posted 461 career points (180-281=461). In 74 career playoff games, he has added 32 points (11-21=32).

The six-foot-five, 215-pound native of Banska Bystrica, Slovakia was originally signed by San Jose as a free agent on July 1, 2011.
