The Boston Bruins have traded goaltender Martin Jones to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a 2016 first-round draft pick and collegiate forward prospect Sean Kuraly. T
The 25-year-old Jones posted a 4-5-2 record in 15 games with the Kings last season, posting a .906 save percentage and a 2.25 goals-against average.
TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported Tuesday that the Bruins sought alternatives to keeping Jones as a back-up due to external pressure.
Originally signed as a free agent by the Kings in 2008, Jones has posted a 16-11-2 record in 34 career games with the club, adding a .923 save percentage and 1.99 GAA.
Boston acquired Jones on Friday along with a first-round draft pick and prospect Colin Miller in exchange for left wing Milan Lucic.
Kuraly, 22, scored 19 goals and 10 assists in 40 games with the University of Miami (Ohio) in 2014-15. The Sharks originally selected him in the fifth round (133rd overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
