Dallas Stars unexpectedly trade young top-15 pick

Published June 19, 2024 at 1:36 PM

The Dallas Stars announced today that they have traded 2018 13th overall pick Ty Dellandrea to the San Jose Sharks for a fourth round pick in 2025.

While the Dallas Stars are well known for being an elite drafting team, selecting players like Wyatt Johnston, Logan Stankoven, Jason Robertson, Roope Hintz, and Jake Oettinger far later than they should have gone, they didn't make the best decision with their 13th overall pick in 2018: Ty Dellandrea.

Ty Dellandrea has now been traded to the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks released this statement:

San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Mike Grier announced today that the club has acquired forward Ty Dellandrea from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a 2025 fourth-round selection (Winnipeg's selection).

Dellandrea, 23, appeared in 42 games for the Stars last season, recording nine points (two goals, seven assists) along with 23 penalty minutes. He ranked sixth among team forwards in hits (63) and was fifth in shorthanded time on ice (78:19).

In the 2024 postseason, he appeared in six games, scoring one goal, and helped the team reach the Western Conference Final against the Edmonton Oilers. He has appeared in 24 career Stanley Cup playoff games, scoring four goals.

Over the course of his NHL career, he has appeared in 151 NHL games, scoring 42 points (14 goals, 28 assists). He also has appeared in 87 American Hockey League (AHL) games, all with the Texas Stars, recording 59 points (27 goals, 32 assists).

Prior to his professional career, he appeared across four seasons with the Flint Firebirds in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), where he served as an assistant captain in the 2017-18 season, and two years as Captain starting in the 2018-19 season. In 231 career OHL games, he scored 216 points (94 goals, 122 assists), and was awarded the OHL Commitment Award, given to «the OHL team captain that best exemplifies leadership on and off the ice, with a passion and dedication to the game of hockey and his community.»

Internationally, he represented Team Canada at the 2020 World Junior Championship, helping the team achieve a Gold Medal finish. He registered five points in seven games at the tournament, and served as an assistant captain on the squad.

The six-foot-two, 190-pound native of Port Perry, Ontario was originally selected by Dallas in the 2018 NHL Draft (first round, 13th overall).
