SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have signed a pair of goalies, agreeing to a deal with free agent Henrik Karlsson of Sweden and re-signing Thomas Greiss.

The 25-year-old Karlsson was given a one-year contract on Wednesday. He posted a 2.45 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage in 32 games for Malmo of Allsvenskan in Sweden last season. He also had a 2.49 goals-against average in seven games with Sodertalje of the Swedish Elite League.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson also announced a two-year deal with Greiss, who was a restricted free agent.

Greiss, who played three games with the Sharks in 2007-08, spent last season with Worcester of the AHL.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
