Tampa, FL-- The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired a second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft (previously acquired from Minnesota) from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for forward Dominic Moore and their seventh-round selection in 2012, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.
The Lightning will now have three selections in the second round of the 2012 draft. They also acquired Philadelphia's second round draft choice on July 1, 2010 in exchange for defenseman Andrej Meszaros.
The trade took place just minutes before the two teams squared off Thursday night.
Moore had played in all 56 games for the Lightning this season, recording four goals and 15 assists.
In 507 career games with the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Toronto, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal and Tampa Bay, Moore has 67 goals and 112 assists.
"Dominic is an extremely versatile player that has performed in a lot of important playoff games the last two years," Sharks executive vice president and general manager Doug Wilson said. "We feel that he is a great fit in several areas and his veteran presence will benefit our team greatly."
