“That’s a good deal.”
That’s what one NHL scout shared about the San Jose Sharks’ acquisition of defenseman Christian Jaros.
It was a rare three-way trade: The Sharks sent defenseman Trevor Carrick to Anaheim for forward Jack Kopacka, then San Jose re-routed Kopacka and their 2022 seventh-round pick to Ottawa for the 24-year-old Jaros.
“Christian is a big right-shot defenseman who plays a physical game,” Doug Wilson said in a press release. “He is a young player with 76 games of NHL experience so far and has the ability to grow his game.”
For what it’s worth, an NHL scout outside of the Sharks organization agreed.
