Demers gets two-year extension from Sharks
Jason Demers, who tied for fourth last season among rookie defensemen in scoring, signed a two-year contract extension with the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

"Jason's puck-moving capabilities and competitive nature fit well with where our team is trending," San Jose GM Doug Wilson said. "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, a seventh-round pick in the 2008 Entry Draft, finished with 4 goals and 21 despite playing in only NHL 51 games. He also played in 25 games with Worcester of the AHL, where he collected 4 goals and 17 points.
In the Stanley Cup Playoffs with San Jose, he added 1 goal and 5 points in 15 games.

The Sharks also re-signed defenseman Mike Moore, who registered 3 goals, 22 points and 82 penalty minutes in 64 games with Worcester last season.
Moore has tallied 8 goals, 40 points and 230 penalty minutes in 143 career games with Worcester.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
