Sharks add Galiardi & Winnik
SJ send McGinn and two prospects to Colorado
2/27/12 - By Mike Lee -

The Sharks acquired two players from the Colorado Avalanche on Monday's NHL Trade Deadline. San Jose picked up forwards T.J. Galiardi and Daniel Winnik, along with a 7th round draft pick, in exchange for Jamie McGinn and prospects Mike Connolly and Michael Sgarbossa.

The 24-year old Galiardi has 171 NHL games under his belt, scoring 33 goals and 39 assists. The winger immediately adds some speed to the Sharks 2nd or 3rd line. He was a 2nd round draft pick in 2007 (55th overall) for Colorado. The Calgary native will be a restricted free agent this summer.

Winnik is a 5th year center that will help bolster the Sharks penalty kill. The Toronto native has played in 345 NHL games for both Colorado and Phoenix, who drafted him in the 9th round in 2004. He fancies himself as a defensive specialist and will most likely play as a 4th liner.

McGinn was in the middle of his first season as a regular roster player for the Sharks, scoring a career high 12 goals through the first 61 games of the season. San Jose loses McGinn's grit, which they are hoping will be replaced by Winnik.
