June 18, 1998
Instead of losing him in the upcoming expansion draft, the Sabres trade goaltender Steve Shields and a fourth round draft choice (Miroslav Zalesak) to San Jose for goaltender Kay Whitmore, a second round draft choice (Jaroslav Kristek) and future considerations. The Sabres choose not to extend a qualifying offer to Whitmore on July 1, making him an unrestricted free agent.
