The San Jose Sharks have acquired forward Anthony Duclair from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Steven Lorentz and a 2025 fifth-round selection, the team announced Saturday.

The 27-year-old Duclair has one year remaining on a three-year, $9 million contract that will carry a cap hit of $3 million in 2023-24.

Duclair played 20 regular season games last season, registering two goals and seven assists. He played in an additional 20 playoff games, scoring four goals and 11 points on the Panthers' run to the Stanley Cup Final.

The Pointe-Claire, Que., native has scored 122 goals and 261 points in 490 career games with the Panthers, Ottawa Senators, Columbus Blue Jackets, Chicago Blackhawks, Arizona Coyotes, and New York Rangers.

Duclair was originally selected in the third round (80th overall) by the Rangers in the 2013 NHL Draft.

Lorentz, 27, skated in 80 games for the Sharks last season, netting 19 points. 

The Kitchener, Ont., native was originally drafted with the 186th overall pick by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015 and played two seasons for the Hurricanes before being traded to the Sharks in 2022.
