Panthers Trade Pick #47 to San Jose for #59 and 2012 3rd Rounder

The Florida Panthers have traded second round picks with the San Jose Sharks, trading down their #47 pick for the Sharks #59 and a 3rd rounder in 2012.

This trade may have been stemmed because Dale Tallon simply didn't see anyone on the board he liked at that pick, but the payoff is pretty good. Tallon keeps a second round pick and gains a valuable 3rd rounder in the process. San Jose drafted Matthew Nieto, a left wing from Boston University. The Panthers picked Rasmus Bengtsson of Sweden
