The San Jose Sharks traded defenseman Justin Braun to the Philadelphia Flyers for a second-round selection in this year's draft and a third-rounder in 2020, the clubsannounced Tuesday.

San Jose clears $3.8 million off its books with the move after signing superstar blue-liner Erik Karlsson to an eight-year extension reportedly worth $92 million Monday.

Philadelphia, meanwhile, continues to retool on the back end after trading Radko Gudas to the Washington Capitals for Matt Niskanen last week.

Braun, who's known more for his defensive contributions than his offense, chipped in 16 points across 78 regular-season games in 2018-19, adding an assist in 20 playoff contests.

The 32-year-old had played his entire nine-year career with the Sharks, who drafted him 201st overall in 2007.
