Originally holding the No. 20 overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, the San Jose Sharks elected to trade back with the Chicago Blackhawks:
Well that was anti-climactic. #SJSharks trade 20th and 179th picks to Chicago for 27th and 62nd pick— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) June 28, 2014
In other words, the three-to-five players the #SJSharks had targeted weren’t going to be available at number 20— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzCSN) June 28, 2014
In exchange, the Sharks acquired extra picks for Day 2 of the draft, fitting for Doug Wilson's rebuilding process.
