San Jose also got a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft in the trade.
Hill, 25, spent his first four NHL seasons with the Arizona Coyotes. Hill was 9-9 in 17 starts (19 games) and had a.913 save percentage and 2.74 goals-against average this season. In his 49 game career, Hill is 19-21-4 with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage.
“Adin is an extremely competitive and athletic goaltender, and he has played a significant amount of professional hockey games despite being only 25 years old,” general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. “We have been impressed with the trajectory of his play, particularly his ability to make saves in high-danger scoring opportunities.”
The trade happened just days before the NHL expansion draft, where the new Seattle Kraken franchise gets to choose players from existing franchises to build a roster for their new team. Hill is a pending restricted free agent seeking a new contract. As a result, the goaltender was one of the players the Arizona Coyotes were expected to lose to the new Seattle franchise in the draft.
Hill was a part of the Gold Medal-winning Canadian team at the recent World Championship in Latvia.
