RALEIGH, N.C. -- The San Jose Sharks acquired defenseman Ian White from the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday in exchange for a draft pick in 2012.

The deal was announced about 1½ hours after the teams' first trade of the day, with Carolina picking up defenseman Derek Joslin from San Jose in exchange for future considerations.

Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford says the development of young defenseman Brett Carson gave the Hurricanes the flexibility to trade White three months after acquiring him from Calgary. In the latest trade, Carolina receives San Jose's second round pick in 2012.

White had two goals, 14 assists and 18 penalty minutes in 50 games this season with the Hurricanes and Flames, and is expected to strengthen the Sharks' defensive corps.
