Hearing that the San Jose Sharks have acquired Martin Jones from the Boston Bruins— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) June 30, 2015
Not sure yet what #SJSharks are giving to Boston, but I’m told it’s nothing off the current roster— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) June 30, 2015
I know Don Sweeney has made some questionable moves in the past few days, but I have to think Sharks are giving up a top prospect/pick here— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) June 30, 2015
Sharks give up a 2016 first-round draft pick plus unsigned prospect Sean Kuraly for Martin Jones— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) June 30, 2015
Welp. Martin Jones' tenure as the Bruins' back-up didn't last long.
Rumor has it the Sharks wanted Jones from the beginning, but Los Angeles didn't want to trade him within the division. Basically, the Bruins played the middleman.
The pick will likely be in the latter half of the first round.
Sean Kuraly is currently playing at the University of Miami (OH). He scored 29 points in 40 games last year, and 29 in 38 games the year before. As per EliteProspects, he'll be Miami's captain next season.
He was a 5th round pick in the 2011 Draft.
So? Good return? Bad return? The Bruins basically traded Milan Lucic for two first-round picks and two prospects.
