SAN JOSE, CALIF. (AP) - San Jose and Minnesota have made their third deal of the offseason, with center James Sheppard going to the Sharks on Sunday for a third-round draft pick in 2013.

Sheppard was the ninth overall pick in the 2006 draft. He missed all of last season with a knee injury. He has 11 goals and 38 assists in 224 career games.

Sheppard was a restricted free agent but has already a signed a contract with the Sharks.

In June, San Jose sent Devin Setoguchi as part of a package to Minnesota for All-Star defenseman Brent Burns. Last month, the Sharks traded Dany Heatley to the Wild for Martin Havlat.
