Nabokov announced his retirement Wednesday from the NHL, just two days after he was traded by Tampa Bay to the San Jose Sharks, the team that drafted him in 1994.

Nabokov played 10 seasons for the Sharks, a span that ended after the 2009-10 campaign. He owns a long list of franchise goaltending records, including most wins (293), shutouts (50) and games (563).

The San Jose Sharks have acquired goalie Nabokov from the Tampa Bay Lightning for future considerations.

Nabokov is expected to retire as a Shark at a news conference on Wednesday. Drafted in 1994 by San Jose, the 39-year-old Nabokov is the Sharks franchise leader in games played for a goalie with 563, wins with 154 and shutouts with 50. San Jose allowed Nabokov to leave as a free agent following the 2009-10 season.

Nabokov was pulled Saturday by coach Jon Cooper.

Nabokov was left to be 'Hangin' with Mr. Cooper' for the remainder of the game after allowing four goals on eight shots in a pathetic effort. Ben Bishop finished up a 7-2 beatdown by the Wild.

Nabokov had 21 stops Tuesday to even his record at 1-1-0.

Nabokov is the backup to Ben Bishop.
