Adin Hill was traded to the San Jose Sharks by the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday for Josef Korenar and a second-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

San Jose also received a seventh-round pick in the 2022 draft.

Hill, a 25-year-old goalie, can become a restricted free agent July 28. He was 9-9-1 with a 2.74 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and two shutouts in an NHL career-high 19 games (17 starts) for the Coyotes this season.

“Adin is an extremely competitive and athletic goaltender, and he has played a significant amount of professional hockey games despite being only 25 years old,” Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. “We have been impressed with the trajectory of his play, particularly his ability to make saves in high-danger scoring opportunities. We look forward to having him in San Jose and being part of our goaltending unit.”

Selected by Arizona in the third round (No. 76) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Hill is 19-21-4 with a 2.79 GAA, .909 save percentage and three shutouts in 49 NHL games (41 starts).

Korenar, a 23-year-old goalie, signed a one-year contract with the Sharks on Tuesday after making his NHL debut for them this season, when he was 3-5-0 with a 3.17 GAA and .889 save percentage in 10 games (seven starts).

Korenar can become a restricted free agent after next season.

“We are very pleased to acquire Josef,” Coyotes general manager Bill Armstrong said. “He is an athletic goaltender who played very well in the Pacific Division. … We look forward to continuing to watch him develop.”
