Sharks Acquire Two New Forwards

As of Tuesday, the Sharks have acquired forwards Ben Eager and Kyle Wellwood. Ben Eager played for the Thrashers for the first half of this season and before that he came from the Blackhawks. Eager was traded to Atlanta from the Blackhawks because of their salary cap issues after they won the Stanley Cup. The Sharks traded a 5th round draft pick from this year’s draft for Eager. Along with Eager came Kyle Wellwood. Wellwood used to play for the Canucks and Ron Wilson’s Maple Leafs when he was claimed off of waivers on Tuesday by the Sharks. These players will help the Sharks out tremendously especially considering how Scott Nichol was suspended for his hit to the head against the coyotes on Monday. Both Wellwood and Eager have already practiced with the team and are expected to suit up against one of Wellwood’s former teams, the Canucks tomorrow.
