The San Jose Sharks made four separate deals ahead of the trade deadline this year acquiring future assets to help the team down the line.

In hopes of maybe turning fortunes around for an unexpected push to the playoffs, the San Jose Sharks find ways to lose any positive momentum, dashing any chances of getting back into the picture.

From the firing of Peter DeBoer back in December, expectations fell to the wayside as the Sharks have yet to respond under Bob Boughner, who is unlikely to return behind the bench for next season.

As the forgetful campaign lingers to a bitter conclusion, resetting for next year became a priority for general manager Doug Wilson who made numerous trades at the deadline to recuperate assets lost from previous acquisitions.

The deals needed to happen despite the popularity of certain players and for the Sharks to keep to the window of opportunity open in staying competitive.

Wilson made four trades as the trade deadline concluded Monday afternoon. Contenders improved, but the Sharks did not, selling to restock for the upcoming draft and free up salary-cap space.

Here is a breakdown of the acquisitions made by the Sharks.
