The San Jose Sharks on Wednesday re-signed forward restricted free-agent forward Brandon Mashinter to a one-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Mashinter, 23, had 16 goals and 17 assists in 65 games with the Worcester Sharks, San Jose's American Hockey League affiliate, last season. He was second on the team in goals and fourth in points.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound center has 13 games of NHL experience, all with the Sharks in 2010-11, when he went scoreless with 17 penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
