Sharks Trade Noesen, Get 4th-Round Pick to Retain on Foligno



Columbus has traded Nick Foligno to Toronto, and they’re re-routing 25% of Foligno’s cap hit through the San Jose Sharks.

Here’s the full deal:

The San Jose Sharks will receive Toronto’s 2021 fourth-round pick to take on $1.375 million of Foligno’s $5.5 million cap hit. They’re also sending Stefan Noesen to the Maple Leafs. Both Foligno and Noesen are impending UFAs.

Noesen, who’s on a one-way, $925,000 contract, had fallen out of favor with the Sharks after providing a spark to the big club last year when he was claimed off waivers. He has spent the majority of the season with the Barracuda.

Look for San Jose to continue to be active tomorrow as a potential middle man in other three-way trades. They still have over $9 million dollars of cap space available for rent.

If that’s the going rate for about a million in retention, what’s the price for retaining more? Last year, Toronto get a 5th for retaining $1.1 million dollars of Robin Lehner’s cap hit, on his way to Vegas. So could the San Jose Sharks be in line for an even better draft pick? The NHL Trade Deadline is 12 PM PT tomorrow.

Hope another team panics and gives SJ a great deal.

is any team interested in a big trade with SJS?


Agreed. biggest name out there is Taylor Hall and between SJS and Buffalo, there’s a lot of retained salary potential. Depending on how a deal is done, Sharks could get another 4th, 3rd or even 2nd.

Hall to BOS.


Good work to get this deal done. Thanks to Stefan for his heart and effort. Numbers game with the kids needing ice time.
Sounds as if the Sharks are also in on a deal for Hall to Boston. I’d love to get Debrusk.

Go Sharks!!


I like Noesen. I wish him well. Unfortunately, Toronto is not a place that supports you unless you are more than “well”.

Missed opportunity here for the Sharks. They could have demanded a 3rd IMO given the cap situation for the Leafs (after all, they are getting a player plus some short term cap relief). Regardless, I’m satisfied with this transaction.
