NHL Trade News: Sharks Acquire Dominic Moore, Draft Pick From Tampa Bay

The San Jose Sharks are looking to bolster their front line with the trade deadline looming and the team made a move on Thursday afternoon to do just that. According to multiple reports, the Sharks have acquired center Dominic Moore and a seventh round draft pick from the Tampa Bay Lightning for a second round pick.

Moore is not an elite scoring threat -- he has just four goals in 56 games played this season and scored 18 last season in Tampa Bay -- although he does a nice job distributing the puck to his teammates and will provide San Jose with some much-needed depth.

The 30-year old center is at -10 this season in terms of +/- minutes and has earned a reputation of being a bit of a bruiser on the ice. He was recently fined the maximum $2,500 penalty for an "interference infraction that caused injury" to Rangers forward Ruslan Fedotenko last week.

The next few days will likely be very busy for the Sharks as they continue to look to make moves. To follow the team, be sure to check out their blog, Fear The Fin.
