The San Jose Sharks dealt defenseman Brent Burns and forward Lane Pederson to the Carolina Hurricanes for forward Steven Lorentz, goaltending prospect Eetu Makiniemi, and a conditional third-round pick in next year’s draft, the team announced Wednesday.

San Jose is retaining one-third of Burns’ $8-million cap hit in the swap. The veteran blue-liner is signed through 2024-25.

Burns played the last 11 seasons with the Sharks and was a key part of numerous playoff runs during his tenure, including their Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2016.

The 37-year-old is entering his 19th season. He ranks third on San Jose’s all-time assists list, fifth in points, and seventh in goals.

Burns played the first seven years of his career with the Minnesota Wild.
