It's Official: Niclas Wallin Gets Traded to Sharks

The Carolina Hurricanes finally completed the trade sending Niclas Wallin to the San Jose Sharks.

The trade, which was "pending" on Thursday, then was pronounced "dead" on Friday, is now official as the Hurricanes sent their defenseman to the Sharks for a 2010 second round draft pick.  The second rounder used to belong to Buffalo, so the Canes will make their choice based upon where the Sabres finish in the standings.  

The Hurricanes also sent a fifth rounder back to San Jose. 

General Manager Jim Rutherford had this to say:

"We thank Nic for his time in Carolina," said Rutherford. "He has been a key part of the Hurricanes for the past nine seasons, and we wish him and his family well."

Wallin was the ultimate team player for Carolina and he will be missed.  We will have more about this later tonight.
