Timo Meier isn’t going to be the San Jose Sharks’ last Trade Deadline deal.

But instead of subtracting pending UFAs Nick Bonino or James Reimer, the Sharks added today, acquiring NCAA defenseman Henry Thrun’s rights from the Anaheim Ducks for a 2024 third-round pick.

The Sharks have until Aug. 15 to sign Thrun to a contract, or he becomes a UFA.

Thrun, 21, was a 2019 Anaheim Ducks’ fourth-round pick, who’s the captain of a Harvard side that’s headed to the NCAA tournament. The senior’s five goals and 26 points in 28 games leads all Crimson defensemen.

The 6-foot-2 left-hander was also a member of Team USA’s gold-medal winning 2021 World Junior Championships squad.

Speaking to sources, Thrun is a high-character prospect with legitimate top-four NHL potential.
