Joel Ward has signed a three-year contract worth $9.75M with the San Jose Sharks.

Ward is coming off a four-year, $12M contract with Washington where he set a career high in goals (24) and points (49) in 2013-14. In all, Ward accumulated 57 goals and 121 points over four seasons and 276 games with Washington. Therefore he doesn't represent a great fantasy option now in the West for standard leagues. For deeper leagues, bear in mind Ward is entering his age-35 season.

San Jose has inked Patrick McNally to a two-year, entry-level contract.

The Sharks recently acquired McNally from Vancouver in exchange for a seventh round pick. McNally had six goals and 21 points in 21 games with Harvard University in 2014-15.
Jul 2 - 5:58 PM

Mark Cundari has inked a one-year, two-way deal with the San Jose Sharks.

Cundari's contract will come with a $600,000 cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had 29 points and 64 penalty minutes in 50 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Jul 2 - 5:56 PM

Micheal Haley has agreed to a one-year extension with the San Jose Sharks.

Haley had 31 points and 106 penalty minutes in 68 AHL contests last season. At the age of 29, he should be regarded as an organizational depth forward.
Jul 2 - 4:11 PM

The San Jose Sharks have signed John McCarthy to a one-year, two-way deal.

McCarthy had 14 goals and 26 points in 60 AHL games in 2014-15. The 28-year-old forward has participated in 87 career NHL contests.

The Washington Capitals signing of Justin Williams makes it highly unlikely that Joel Ward will be returning to the team.

Ward is also an unrestricted free agent and while he was a valuable asset to the Capitals last season with 19 goals and 34 points, he will likely be taking his talents elsewhere. He reportedly had six teams interested in his services last week so it remains to be seen where he will end up.

Paul Martin has signed a four-year contract with the San Jose Sharks with an annual average value of $4.85 million.

This is a big signing for the Sharks, especially since they lost out on a trade for Kevin Bieksa. Martin should slot in as a top-four rearguard and get some second power-play ice time with the Sharks. That should be good enough for him to better his 20-point effort of 2014-15. We expect Martin to register between 25-30 points in San Jose, which makes him a marginal fantasy asset.
Jul 1 - 12:44 PM

Martin Jones has inked a three-year, $9 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Jones was eligible to test the restricted free agent market. He played for Los Angeles last season, but was dealt to Boston and then San Jose over the course of the last week. Jones had a 2.25 GAA and .906 save percentage in 15 contests last season. The move to San Jose gives him an opportunity to compete for a starting gig and he's not a bad late round gamble in standard fantasy league drafts as a result. Just don't get too excited about his career NHL numbers given the relatively small sample size.
Jul 1 - 10:22 AM

Bryan Lerg has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the San Jose Sharks.

The 29-year-old forward probably won't be gracing your fantasy squad any time soon, but he did put up 13 goals and 41 points in 68 games for AHL Worcester last season. His AHL salary is not yet known, but he did make $125K in 2014-15. He'll ding the cap at a $600K rate while with San Jose, though.
Jun 30 - 8:03 PM

Martin Jones may have a contract with San Jose by the end of the day, according to TSN's Darren Dreger.

Dreger spoke to Jones' agent and a new deal appears to be moving along swiftly for the restricted free agent. Jones was traded to Boston just before the draft and then flipped to the Sharks.
Jun 30 - 4:39 PM

The San Jose Sharks have given Daniil Tarasov and Aaron Dell qualifying offers.

Tarasov turned 24 last week and had one assist in five games with the Sharks this past season, while garnering 16 goals and 33 points in 54 games for Worcester of the AHL. Dell played 26 games in net for Worcester and was 15-8-2 with a 2.06 GAA and a .927 save percentage.
Jun 30 - 3:23 PM

Martin Jones has been traded to the San Jose Sharks for a 2016 first-round draft pick and unsigned prospect Sean Kuraly.

Jones has a 16-11-2 record with a .923 save percentage and a 1.99 goals-against average in 34 games with the Los Angeles Kings over the past two seasons. He was just acquired by the Bruins in the Milan Lucic deal, but now his fantasy stock has improved considerably as he has a good chance of being the starting goalie for the Sharks.
Jun 30 - 1:04 PM

Brenden Dillon has signed a five-year contract to remain with the San Jose Sharks.

The 24-year-old defenseman could have become a restricted free agent Wednesday. The contract has an average annual value of $3.27 million, CSN Bay Area’s Kevin Kurz reported. The Sharks acquired Dillon Nov. 21 in a trade with the Dallas Stars for defenseman Jason Demers and a third-round choice in the 2016 NHL Draft. Dillon scored two goals, added seven assists and posted a minus-11 rating in 60 games with the Sharks.
Jun 29 - 9:58 PM

The Boston Bruins believe that Martin Jones has the potential to be a number one goalie at the NHL level.

The Bruins acquired Jones from the Los Angeles Kings as part of a package for winger Milan Lucic. The 25-year-old will be a restricted free-agent on July 1st, but the Bruins are confident they can hammer out a deal with their new goalie. "We haven’t got into any negotiations yet, but we got a pretty good idea of where they’re at from speaking to (the Kings)," said Director of Player Personnel John Ferguson Jr. "He’s a backup thus far and he certainly has a higher upside than that."
Jun 28 - 10:29 AM

The San Jose Sharks picked up Patrick McNally from Vancouver for a seventh round pick.

McNally has to be signed by August 15 or he will become an unrestricted free agent. He was selected by the Canucks in the fourth round of the 2010 draft and spent the last four seasons playing at Harvard University. "It is a sleeper acquisition," an excited GM Doug Wilson said. "He had a bit of a [knee] injury last year. ... We’re as excited about adding him as just about anybody."
