San Jose Sharks bought goaltender Adin Hill from Arizona Coyotes and second-round pick in the 2022 draft on Saturday, replacing goaltender Joseph Coroner.
According to SportsNet, the seventh round pick at the next auction will be along with Hill in California.
The Sharks will have to come to an agreement with the 25-year-old British Colombian on July 28 to become a free agent with compensation. Next season, the 6’6 ‘giant could fight for the top spot on the net.
Veteran Martin Jones may be exposed in the expansion draft.
With regular Coyotes goaltenders Darcy Kuimper and Aunt Ranta injured, Hill called for more responsibility and had some success with an 9-9-1 record, 2 goals.74 against average and an impact rate of .913.
Korner tasted the National Hockey League for the first time in 2020-2021. The Czechs are 3-5-0 with an average of 3.17 goals allowed and a save rate of .899. The 23-year-old goaltender also has American League experience, going 40-25-12.
