In a smaller NHL trade on Friday, the San Jose Sharks have acquired young defensemen Nicolas Meloche from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange, they are sending back goaltender Antoine Bibeau.

“Nicolas is a strong right shot defenseman who helps complete our left and right balance on the blueline,” said Sharks assistant General Manager Joe Will. “His game is a blend of offense and defense and we feel that his assets will complement our young defensive prospects.”

Meloche played in 55 games for the Colorado Eagles last season and recored 21 points (six goals, 15 assists). He finished tied for first among Eagles defensemen in goals and ranked second in points. He was a second-round, 40th overall, pick by the Avalanche in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Bibeau appeared in two seasons for the San Jose Barracuda, putting up a 39-27-9 record with San Jose. He played two games in the NHL, as part of the Toronto Maple Leafs back in 2016-17.
