Jason Demers signs a two-year deal with the San Jose Sharks.
The San Jose Sharks announced on Thursday that the club has signed defenseman Jason Demers to a two-year contract extension.

"Jason's puck-moving capabilities and competitive nature fit well with where our team is trending," said Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson. "He is very capable of executing the up-tempo style of game we want to play and we see him as an important part of our team."

Demers, voted the PlayStation "Rookie of the Year" by the Bay Area media, tied for fourth among NHL rookie defensemen with 21 points (four goals, 17 assists) despite playing in only 51 games. He finished fourth among Sharks blueliners in scoring.

Demers also played in 25 games with Worcester (AHL), where he collected 17 points (four goals, 13 assists) and 24 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
