Sharks acquire Kennedy from Penguins
TheFourthPeriod.com

The San Jose Sharks have acquired forward Tyler Kennedy from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a second-round draft pick, 50th overall, in the NHL Draft.

Kennedy, 26, registered six goals and five assists for 11 points in 46 games with the Penguins this past season.

"Tyler is a highly-competitive forward who plays with speed and has a history of scoring big goals," said Sharks GM Doug Wilson. "He has played in a lot of playoff games over the last past five seasons, won a Stanley Cup and we think he fits in perfectly with our group and how we want to play the game."

In 372 career NHL regular-season games over six seasons in Pittsburgh, Kennedy has accumulated 76 goals and 92 assists for 168 points, along with 181 penalty minutes.

Kennedy was originally drafted by the Penguins in the fourth-round (99th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
