The Stars have traded Brenden Dillon to the Sharks for Jason Demers and a 2016 third round pick.

Demers, 26, has three assists and a minus-6 rating in 20 games with the Sharks. Demers addresses the Stars need for a right-handed D-man. He is just two of seven blueliners on the Stars' squad that is a righty. He is a better puck moving defenseman than Dillon, but obviously is not nearly as big.

The Sharks signed Jason Demers to a two-year deal worth $6.8 million.

The deal means that both sides will avoid an arbitration hearing for the 26-year-old blueliner, who was a restricted free agent. Last season, Demers had a career-high 34 points (5G / 29A) in 75 games. Demers was fourth amongst Sharks D-men in power-play time per game and with Dan Boyle new in New York, Demers should move up one spot in the pecking order.

Demers will miss Saturday’s game in Colorado due to illness, according to Todd McLellan.

Demers remained at the team hotel on Saturday afternoon, as the Sharks will try and isolate him from the rest of the group to try and avoid a bug going through the team with just six games remaining. Demers will fly back to San Jose with the Sharks after the Avalanche game. In 69 games, Demers has four goals and 28 assists for 32 points. He is the team’s leading scorer among defensemen. Scott Hannan, who was scratched against the Jets on Thursday, will return to the lineup.

Demers is likely to return to the Sharks’ lineup on Friday as they host Columbus in the final game before the Olympic break.

Demers has missed the last three games with a groin injury that was bothering him even before he came out after the Sharks’ loss in Calgary on January 30. “All signs point to yes,” said Demers, when asked if he was good to go, following the morning skate. Matt Irwin looks to be the odd-man out on the blue line.

Sharks defenseman Jason Demers won’t play on Saturday against Phoenix, possibly suffering from the effects of an apparent hit to the head from Detroit’s Cory Emmerton on Thursday.

Demers was not at the Sharks’ morning skate. “Not feeling good today, won’t play tonight,” head coach Todd McLellan said. He is not a fantasy relevant player having scored just one goal in 15 games this season.
