Winnipeg Jets acquire Vladislav Namestnikov from San Jose Sharks

The Winnipeg Jets have acquired forward Vladislav Namestnikov from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a 2024 fourth-round draft pick.

Namestnikov, 30, is playing out a one-year, $2.5 million deal that he signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning last offseason. As of this writing, the versatile, speedy forward has 15 points in 57 games. This trade also, apparently, ties Namestnikov for the most times being dealt at the deadline with four.

For the Sharks, this is a nice little bit of asset management. First, they claimed Michael Eyssimont off of waivers from the Jets. Then, they dealt him to the Tampa Bay Lightning after he'd flourished with the Sharks this season in exchange for Namestnikov. Now, they've turned Namestnikov into a fourth-round pick.
