SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -The San Jose Sharks have signed free-agent forward Jamal Mayers to a one-year contract.

The team announced the deal Wednesday.

Mayers says he was looking to join a team that gave him the best chance to win. San Jose made it to the Western Conference final last season before losing to eventual champion Chicago.

Mayers split time last season with Toronto and Calgary. He had three goals, 11 assists and 131 penalty minutes in 71 games.

Mayers has played 737 career games with St. Louis, Toronto and Calgary. He has 81 goals, 107 assists and 969 penalty minutes.

The Sharks have also re-signed minor league center Steven Zalewski to a one-year contract.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
