The Minnesota Wild Trade Devan Dubnyk To San Jose

 

 

Devan Dubnyk has been traded to the San Jose Sharks along with a seventh-round pick to Minnesota for a fifth-round pick. The Minnesota Wild will retain 50% of Dubnyk’s salary. This is the second trade of the day between the Sharks and the Wild. Dubnyk will cost the Sharks just over two million dollars after the money is retained in the last year of his contract. Furthermore, this is the writing on the wall that Martin Jones’s time in San Jose is likely over.

Dubnyk was a former first-round pick for the Edmonton Oilers, selected 14th overall in 2004. He is coming off a tough season with a 3.35 GAA and .890 save% in 30 games. The Sharks dealt with lots of injuries, and their goaltending was far from stellar last season. Can the Sharks get back to their winning ways with a 34-years-old Dubnyk between the pipes? We will see.
