Nick Petrecki has cleared waivers and been assigned to the minors.

The San Jose Sharks still have 31 players left on their training camp roster. If he ever solidifies a spot in the NHL, he might have some fantasy value as a source of penalty minutes.

Nick Petreck has agreed to a one-year contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Petreck was a restricted free agent. He had six points and 135 penalty minutes in 42 AHL games last season.

San Jose Sharks extend qualifying offers to Nick Petrecki and Marek Viedensky.

Petrecki was the Sharks' first-round pick in 2007 but has yet to live up to the draft status. He spent the past four seasons with AHL Worchester before making his NHL debut this season. He had no points and no penalty minutes in one game in 2013. Viedensky has yet to appear in an NHL game since being drafted in the seventh round in 2009. The team also declined qualifying offers to Tommy Grant and Thomas Heemskerk, meaning both players become unrestricted free agents. Justin Sefton was not offered a contract by the June 1 deadline and was eligible to re-enter the draft.

Nick Petrecki has passed through waivers and has been sent to the minors.

Petrecki is on a two-way deal so sending the 23-year-old down to Worcester of the AHL will save the Sharks money. He has been a disappointment since being drafted in the first round, 28th overall in the 2007 Draft when the Sharks loved his hard hitting and heavy shot from the point.

Nick Petrecki has been waived by the San Jose Sharks.

The move could be a precursor to Brent Burns getting back into the lineup, but that may or may not happen as soon as Saturday afternoon. Petrecki played in just one game with San Jose and he'll probably head to the minors if he clears.

The San Jose Sharks have loaned Nick Petrecki to Worcester of the AHL.

He is being sent to the minors on a conditioning stint and the move allows the Sharks to send him down without putting him on waivers. He remains on the Sharks 23 man roster and will continue to collect an NHL salary.

Nick Petrecki will likely be the odd man out when Justin Demers is able to return to action.

Demers is close to returning and that will give the Sharks an extra blueliner. Petrecki is on a two-way contract and could use the playing time, so the 23-year-old first round pick in 2007 is the best candidate to be sent down.
Tue, Jan 22, 2013 11:05:00 AM

The San Jose Sharks have inked Nick Petrecki to a one-year contract.

The Sharks wouldn't reveal the financial terms of the deal, but reported that it's a two-way contract worth $650,000 annually in the NHL. Petrecki has three points and 53 penalty minutes in 16 AHL contests.

Defenseman Nick Petrecki is out of action with a hand injury.

Petrecki has been a disappointment for the Sharks after being taken in the first round, 28th overall, in the 2007 Draft. At age 23, he has yet to play in the NHL and has been passed on the overall depth chart by a couple of teammates on the blueline in Worcester. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Nick Petrecki has signed with the AHL Worcester Sharks.

Petrecki had nine points and 107 penalty minutes in 68 games with Worcester last season. He was taken with the 28th overall pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Nick Petrecki has been sent down to AHL Worcester.

The San Jose Sharks have recalled Nick Petrecki from the minors.

Petrecki was the Sharks first round pick, 28th overall in the 2007 Entry Draft. He struggled last season with only 14 points and 106 penalty minutes in 65 games and has only seven points with 86 penalty minutes, including eight fighting majors, in 40 games this season. It looks like the defenseman will provide some toughness for the Sharks on the blueline when he plays.

The San Jose Sharks have sent Nick Petrecki to the minors.

This is not a surprise as the defenseman struggled last season with Worcester of the AHL and actually was a healthy scratch in the AHL playoffs. He had 14 points and 106 minutes in 65 games last season. Look for a bounce back season from the 28th overall pick in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Nick Petrecki is looking forward to bouncing back from an off-season last year.

Petrecki played for Worcester of the AHL last season but saw his ice time dwindle during the regular season to a point where he was a healthy scratch during the playoffs. He was the 28th overall pick in the 2007 Entry Draft. "Nick in college was a very big, strong, physical guy playing his games against some younger men," coach Todd McLellan said. "The pro game is a little bit different -- you've got some older guys who may be more experienced and less intimidated."He is a physical player with good size and a solid shot who had two goals and 14 points in 65 games last season with 106 minutes in the sin bin. Look for Petrecki to return to Worcester this season but with much better results.
