Avalanche land backup goalie Devan Dubnyk in trade with Sharks

Dubnyk has played in 537 games in his NHL career with the Oilers, Predators, Coyotes, Wild and Sharks.

DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche have their backup goalie for a potential Stanley Cup run. 

The team announced on Saturday afternoon it had acquired Devan Dubnyk from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for defenseman Greg Pateryn and a fifth-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft. 

Dubnyk, a 12-year NHL veteran, has appeared in 537 career games during stints with the Oilers, Predators, Coyotes, Wild and Sharks. He has a career record of 250-204-54, but was just 3-9-2 so far this season with San Jose. 

With Philipp Grubauer firmly entrenched as Colorado's starting goalie, Dubnyk will assume a backup role for the Avalanche but provides experience at the position the team desperately needed. With Minnesota from 2014-2020 Dubnyk was second in wins (177) among all NHL goalies. 

It was the second trade the Avalanche made ahead of Monday's deadline, with the team re-acquiring defenseman Patrick Nemeth Friday.

Colorado next plays against Anaheim Sunday afternoon.
