Jaros Focus of Three Team Trade Between Ducks, Senators and Sharks

The San Jose Sharks completed two trades today, first dealing with the Ottawa Senators and with the Anaheim Ducks.

In a 2020-21 NHL season that is destined to see fewer trades than in a typical year because of pandemic restrictions, to see a three-team trade eight games into the season is quite surprising. Still, the San Jose Sharks completed two trades today, first dealing with the Anaheim Ducks, then moving over to a trade with the Ottawa Senators.

In the first trade, the Sharks sent defenseman Trevor Carrick to the Ducks in exchange for forward Jack Kopacka. They followed that up by sending Kopacka and San Jose’s own seventh-round selection in the 2022 NHL Draft to the Senators in exchange for defenseman Christian Jaros.

GM Doug Wilson released a short statement on the acquisition of Jaros and said:

Christian is a big right-shot defenseman who plays a physical game. He is a young player with 76 games of NHL experience so far and has the ability to grow his game.

Jaros, split time between the Ottawa Senators and the Belleville Senators of the AHL in 2019-20. During his 13 games with Ottawa, he recorded three assists and six penalty minutes. Over the course of his NHL career, Jaros has appeared in 76 NHL games, recording 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) with 33 penalty minutes.

Sharks Make Other Moves

The Sharks also put Jacob Middleton on waivers today. It could turn out that the Jaros trade helps ease the pain of potentially losing Middleton if someone is interested in the left-shot defenseman.
