The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded Tyler Kennedy to the San Jose Sharks in return for their second pick in the 2013 NHL entry draft, the 50th pick overall.
Kennedy was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 4th round, 99th overall of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. After being drafted, Kennedy played two seasons with Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the OHL. In 2010-2011, Kennedy posted his best numbers, scoring 21 goals and 45 points, a much better point total than his 11 points during the lockout shortened 2012-2013 campaign.
The Penguins now have a second round pick, which is their highest one so far this year. The Sharks had two back to back picks in the second round, making one of them expendable.
