Sharks acquire Hansen from Canucks

The San Jose Sharks have acquired right wing Jannik Hansen from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for forward Nikolay Goldobin and a 2017 conditional fourth-round draft pick.

Hansen, 30, has one-year left on his deal after this season at a salary cap hit of $2.5 million, though he's making $3 million in actual salary this year and next.

Should San Jose win the 2017 Stanley Cup, the fourth-round draft pick becomes a 2017 first-round selection.

"Jannik is a versatile, gritty player who plays with speed and is talented on both sides of the puck," said Sharks GM Doug Wilson. "We think he is a perfect fit for the style of our team, which has earned the right for us to make this move and add to our NHL roster as we push towards the playoffs."

In 28 games with the Canucks so far this season, Hansen has registered six goals and seven assists for 13 points and 27 penalty minutes.

In 565 career NHL regular-season games, all with the Canucks, Hansen has accumulated 105 goals and 130 assists for 235 points and 260 penalty minutes.

He was originally drafted by the Canucks in the ninth-round (287th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

Goldobin, 21, played in two games with the Sharks this season. He picked up 15 goals and 26 assists for 41 points in 46 games with the AHL's San Jose Barracuda this season.

In 11 NHL games, he has tallied one goal and one assist.

The Moscow native was drafted 27th overall by the Sharks in the 2014 NHL Draft.
