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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
