Sharks sign trio after rookie tournament
Three undrafted free agents who played for San Jose's team at last week's Young Stars Tournament in Penticton, B.C., impressed the club enough to earn entry-level contracts.

The Sharks announced Tuesday that they've signed goaltender J.P. Anderson and forwards Curt Gogol and Michael Sgarbossa.  No terms were disclosed.

Anderson, 18, appeared in two of San Jose's three games during the tournament, going 2-0-0 with a 2.00 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. The Toronto native spent the past two seasons with Mississauga of the Ontario Hockey League, and was 23-10-1 with a 2.60 GAA and two shutouts in 36 games last season.

Gogol, 18, appeared in all three Sharks games during the YoungStars Tournament and recorded 18 penalty minutes. The Calgary native spent parts of the last three seasons with the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL before being traded to the Saskatoon Blades. In 43 games with Kelowna and Saskatoon last season, Gogol had 1 goal, 6 assists and 149 penalty minutes.

Sgarbossa, also 18, had 3 goals and 1 assist in two games. His 4 points were second in the tournament.

Sgarbossa was a member of Team Canada's silver medal-winning squad at the 2010 World Under-18 Championships, where he had 1 goal, 1 assist and 4 penalty minutes. The Campbellville, Ont., native split time last season between the Barrie Colts and the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League. In 67 games, he had 20 goals, 52 points and 63 penalty minutes.
Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
