The San Jose Sharks acquired the 11th overall pick of the 2024 NHL Draft from the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday.

The Sabres, in turn, received the 14th overall pick and a second-round selection from San Jose. The first-round pick from the Sharks initially belonged to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the trade for Erik Karlsson, while the latter selection (No. 42 overall) originally belonged to the New Jersey Devils.

The Sharks also possess the top overall pick among their nine total selections in this week's draft. The draft begins Friday at Sphere in Las Vegas.

Later on Thursday, the Sharks acquired forward Carl Grundstrom from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenseman Kyle Burroughs.

Grundstrom, 26, recorded 12 points (eight goals, four assists) in 50 games last season with Los Angeles. He has totaled 67 points (40 goals, 27 assists) in 236 career games with the Kings.

Burroughs, 28, had eight points (two goals, six assists) in 73 games last season with San Jose. He has 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) in 168 career games with the Colorado Avalanche, Vancouver Canucks and Sharks.
