The San Jose Sharks acquired Adin Hill and a 2022 seventh-round pick from the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday in exchange for fellow goaltender Josef Korenar and a 2022 second-round selection.

Hill, 25, can become a restricted free agent on July 28.

Hill posted a 9-9-1 record with two shutouts, a 2.74 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 19 appearances (17 starts) last season for the Coyotes. He owns a 19-21-4 record with three shutouts, a 2.79 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 49 career games (41 starts) with Arizona.

“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.”

Korenar, 23, meets the minimum exposure requirements for the upcoming NHL Expansion Draft. He was 3-5-0 with a 3.17 GAA and .899 save percentage in 10 games (seven starts) last 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 playoffs. We look forward to continuing to watch him develop.”
