Capitals acquire defenseman Brenden Dillon from Sharks

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) The Washington Capitals bolstered their blue line Tuesday by acquiring veteran defenseman Brenden Dillon from the San Jose Sharks.

Washington sent Colorado's 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2021 third-rounder to San Jose for the pending unrestricted free agent. The Sharks are keeping half of Dillon's salary and cap hit to facilitate the move.

"Brenden is an experienced defenseman who plays a solid defensive game with a high compete level and physicality," Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said. "We felt it was important for us to add a player of his caliber to our defensive group."
