Jeremy Morin did not get a qualifying offer from San Jose.

That means he will be free to sign anywhere as an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He played with the Toronto Marlies and the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL last year. Morin had 14 points in 18 games with the Sharks' minor-league affiliate after he was acquired from Toronto.

GM Doug Wilson all but said that James Reimer, Nick Spaling, Dainius Zubrus and Roman Polak will not be re-signed before they become UFA's on July 1.

This is no surprise as the Sharks will look to bring some of their cheaper minor leaguers up to do the job. Reimer has a few spots to look at but they will be in a backup role most likely. Teams like Anaheim and Edmonton are in the market for a backup and it remains to be seen where Reimer winds up. He was 17-14-7 with a 2.31 GAA and a .922 save percentage in 40 games with the Sharks and Toronto in 2015-16.

Brent Burns has one season left on his five-year, $28.8 million contract.

The Norris Trophy finalist racked up 27 goals and 75 points 82 games during the 2015-16 season. "You know how we feel about Brent. Phenomenal year," GM Doug Wilson said. "When we acquired him it was a big piece to acquire. There's no doubt he's important to us. We want him. I think he loves being here. Those conversations will take place shortly."

James Reimer is expected to test free agency on July 1.

He is likely to find a team that is looking for a number one goalie or a situation where he can compete for the top job. Reimer played well for Toronto and San Jose in 2015-16.

Tomas Hertl is undergoing an evaluation to see if surgery is required on his knee.

He didn't think a procedure would be necessary last week. Sharks GM Doug Wilson said Monday he'll probably know in the next seven-to-10 days whether any of his players, who were playing banged up in the playoffs, will require surgery.

Maxim Letunov has been traded to the San Jose Sharks.

Letunov and a 2017 sixth-round pick were sent from the Coyotes to San Jose for a 2016 fourth-round pick and 2017 third-round pick. Letunov had 16 goals and 40 points in 36 games for the University of Connecticut in 2015-16. He was a second-round pick of the Blues in 2014.

Brent Burns is nominated for ESPN's Sports Humanitarian of the Year award.

The other nominees include Tina Charles of the WNBA, Carlos Dunlap of the Cincinnati Bengals and Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. Burns has worked with the United Heroes League, which helps military stay active and healthy through sports. He also helps a group that gives scholarships to family members of deceased military personnel.

Joe Thornton isn't thinking about leaving the San Jose Sharks.

He has a no-movement clause in his contract and he isn't considering going somewhere else. "I've got one more year left," Thornton said. "I haven't thought about that at all, to be honest." He finally got to play in his first Stanley Cup Final and the soon-to-be 37-year-old veteran will play in the World Cup for Canada in September.

Martin Jones was excellent in the Stanley Cup Final despite losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He posted a .931 save percentage and a 2.28 goals-against average in the series. "What do you say about him? One of the all-time best goaltending performances in a Final probably ever, or right up there, anyway," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I thought he was sensational every game we played. Gave us a chance to compete and get it to six games." The Sharks were outplayed throughout the Stanley Cup Final, but Jones kept the games close and he stole a couple of victories as well.
Jun 13 - 6:02 PM

Patrick Marleau wants to stay with the San Jose Sharks.

"Yeah, I have a contract for next year, so looking forward to it," he said. Marleau reportedly indicated to the Sharks earlier this past season that he wouldn't mind being traded to some approved teams. He has full no-trade and no-move clauses in his contract. The veteran forward finally reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2016, but the Sharks ended up losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tomas Hertl sustained a knee injury in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The ailment forced him to miss the next four games of the series. The good news is that Hertl will not require surgery. He will probably continue to rehab over the summer.
Jun 13 - 4:10 PM

Joe Pavelski was left with an empty feeling after the Sharks lost in the Stanley Cup Final to Pittsburgh.

"To be right there and be that close ... ," Pavelski said. "At the end of the day, it's tough. It just ends. We've been playing and traveling and playing every other day for a long time. It seems like you should keep playing." He had four hits, three blocks and a minus-2 rating in Game 6's 3-1 loss to the Penguins. He wasn't credited with a shot on goal in the contest and his only point of the series came on a empty-net goal in Game 5.
Jun 13 - 10:08 AM

Martin Jones stopped 24 of 26 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The loss means that the Sharks' playoff run is over. Despite coming out on the losing end, Jones had a very good game and series. The 26-year-old finished the postseason with a 14-10 record, a 2.16 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage.
Jun 12 - 11:23 PM

Logan Couture scored in San Jose's 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The loss means the Sharks are eliminated and the Penguins claim the 2016 Stanley Cup. Couture tied the game at one with his goal at the 6:27 mark of the second period. Unfortunately for San Jose, Pittsburgh tied the game just 1:19 later. Melker Karlsson and Brent Burns picked up the assists on the Sharks' only goal. Couture finishes the postseason with an incredible 10 goals and 30 points in 24 games. No player had more playoff points than Couture in 2016.

The San Jose Sharks want to do a better job of protecting Martin Jones in Game 6.

"I think being at home helped part of it," coach Peter DeBoer said. "But I think it was more our mindset. We got away from it last game. We allowed them to funnel pucks to the net. That's what they do. I thought we did a great job [in Game 4], probably the best game of the series where we've done a good job of denying them funneling those pucks to the net. We've got to get back to that. We have to help Jones out. Even if those aren't quality shots, it creates action in our net, it creates chaos. That's what they're looking to do. We've got to put a stop to that." The Sharks will look to force Game 7 on Wednesday night.
