SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has acquired a second-round draft selection in the 2016 NHL Draft and a sixth-round draft selection in the 2017 NHL Draft from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for defenseman Brad Stuart.

"Brad has been a true professional on and off the ice for our organization for many years and I want to express our sincere thanks for everything he has done for our team," said Wilson.

"In the phase that our organization is in, we made a decision that is in the best interest of all parties involved. Brad understands that we have made a commitment to give our younger players the opportunity to play and it was important to us to put Brad in a position where he has a chance to be successful."
