The Pittsburgh Penguins placed forward Stefan Noesen on waivers on Wednesday. The 26-year-old didn't have to wait too long to find a new home. 

The Sharks claimed Noesen off waivers on Thursday, the team announced. 

Noesen had appeared in six games this season for the Penguins and scored one goal. He has played for the Anaheim Ducks, New Jersey Devils and Penguins since making his NHL debut on April 3, 2015. 

The Ottawa Senators selected Noesen with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he was traded to Anaheim just two years later.
