Sharks return Tierney to London

The San Jose Sharks trimmed one player from their training-camp roster Monday, returning center Chris Tierney to his junior team.

A second-round pick (No. 55) in the 2012 NHL Draft, Tierney will play this season for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.

The 6-foot, 197-pound forward had 57 points in 68 regular-season games last season, and 21 points in 21 OHL playoff games to help London win the league title. He also had a goal and two assists in five games at the Memorial Cup.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
