RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired defenseman Derek Joslin (JAWS-lihn) from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for future considerations.

“Derek is a young defenseman who will add depth to our organization,” said Rutherford. “He shows a good skill level and plays a solid two-way game.”

Joslin, 23, has played in 17 games with San Jose this season, totaling one goal, three assists (4 points) and eight penalty minutes. The Richmond Hill, Ont., native is in his third NHL season, and has totaled one goal and six assists (7 points) and 26 penalty minutes in 53 career NHL games, all with San Jose. Joslin (6’1”, 210 lbs.) had 32 points (5g, 27a) in 55 American Hockey League (AHL) games with Worcester last season, and was tied for second among AHL defensemen in Calder Cup playoff goals with four. San Jose’s fifth-round pick (149th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Joslin played in the AHL All-Star Game in 2009, winning the Hardest Shot Contest at the AHL Skills Competition. His career statistics are below.
