The Arizona Coyotes have traded goalie Adin Hill to the San Jose Sharks for a 2022 second round draft pick and goalie Josef Korenar, the team announced on Saturday.

Hill has started 49 games in his NHL career with a record of 19-21-4, a 2.79 GAA and .909 save percentage.

The 25-year-old was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NHL Draft by the Coyotes and enjoyed his best season last year, earning 17 starts going 9-9-1.

The trade gives Arizona some much needed draft capital after the Coyotes were forced to forfeit their first round pick in the 2021 draft due to violating the NHL’s combine testing policy.

Arizona was also forced to lose its second round pick in the 2020 draft.

The Coyotes also receive Josef Korenar, a 23-year-old prospect from Czech Republic.

Korenar has played in 10 NHL games and started in seven. He has a 3-5-0 record with a 3.17 GAA and .899 save percentage.

The Coyotes will also send a 2022 seventh round pick to the Sharks in the deal.

The NHL is preparing for the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft on Wednesday.

Friday was the deadline for players to waive their no-movement clauses ahead of the draft.

A freeze on trade, waivers and signings took effect on Saturday at 3:00 p.m ET and will last through Thursday at 1:00 p.m.

NHL teams are required to submit their protected players lists by 5:00 p.m. ET on Saturday.
