Breaking News: Dan Boyle to Swim with the Sharks in San Jose?

Derek HarmsworthSenior Writer IJuly 4, 2008

After being quiet on the first few days of free agency, the San Jose Sharks are finally beginning to show some bite.

Yesterday the club signed veteran defenseman Rob Blake, and now it appears they are about to acquire Tampa Bay's Dan Boyle.

Boyle has agreed to waive his no-trade clause, and once league paper work is completed Boyle will become a San Jose Shark.  Defenseman Brad Lukowich will also go to San Jose with Boyle.

In return, the Lightning are expected to receive a package from San Jose that would include 23-year-old defenseman Matt Carle, Ty Wishart, and a first- and fourth-round pick.
