The New York Islanders made a depth move Monday afternoon, adding forward Tyler Kennedy in a trade with the San Jose Sharks, multiple sources confirmed to ESPN.com.
The Islanders also acquired goaltender Michal Neuvirth from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for backup netminder Chad Johnson and a 2016 third-round draft pick, a source confirmed.
Kennedy, 28, has appeared in just 25 games for the Sharks as he has struggled to find a fit with San Jose.
The Islanders, who gave up a conditional pick in the deal, have previously expressed interest in Kennedy, a source told ESPN.com.
Kennedy played six seasons for the Pittsburgh Penguins before joining the Sharks in 2013-14.
The Islanders made a smaller trade Monday, sending left wing Cory Conacher to the Vancouver Canucks for center Dustin Jeffrey.
The Sharks also made a separate minor deal, trading center Freddie Hamilton to the Colorado Avalanche for defenseman Karl Stollery.
