While the Sharks held on to Joe Thornton, the Sharks made a last-minute deal before Monday's NHL trade deadline.
San Jose sent Barclay Goodrow to the Tampa Bay Lightning, along with a third-round draft pick, for Anthony Greco and a 2020 first-round pick.

Still pending the official trade call, but once finalized hearing that the Sharks will get a first-round pick in this trade... https://t.co/mD7s1FFB9i— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) February 24, 2020
The Sharks went into the deadline without a first-round pick.
Goodrow, 26, forever will be remembered as the hero who scored the game-winning goal against the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 7 of their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series last season. He has scored a career-high 24 points this season -- eight goals and 16 assists.
Goodrow has 71 points over 268 career games. The Toronto native has scored 26 goals and 45 assists as a Shark.
