The Sharks completed a minor deal with the Edmonton Oilers Saturday, sending prospect Lee Moffie to Edmonton in exchange for Upland, California native Kyle Bigos. 

Selected by the Oilers in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL entry draft, Bigos is a six-foot, 235-pound defenseman currently playing for Merrimack College in the NCAA.

Noted for his size and physicality, the 24-year-old rearguard potted four goals and added seven assists for 11 points in 30 games last season. 

Moffie heads to Edmonton after a significant decline in his production with the University of Michigan last year. Drafted in the seventh round in 2010, Moffie registered 32 points in 41 games with Michigan in 2011-12 but managed just 13 points in 40 games last season.

Both prospects have yet to sign an NHL contract.
