Sharks sign first Bay Area-born NHL prospect
The Sharks signed Sena Acolatse on Friday, making him the first Bay Area prospect inked by the franchise.
The San Jose Sharks on Friday signed unrestricted free-agent defensive prospect Sena Acolatse to an entry-level contract. Originally from Hayward, Calif., Acolatse becomes the first Bay Area-born prospect to be signed by the Sharks.

Acolatse, 20, has spent most of this season with Prince George of the Western Hockey League  following an early-season trade from Saskatoon. Between both clubs, he has posted 56 points (14 goals and 42 assists) in 59 games, along with 121 penalty minutes.

“This is a great moment for me to sign with the Sharks and join a tremendous organization that is building a winning tradition,” said Acolatse, who has 12 points in his last 10 games. “Coming to Prince George has been an excellent move for me and I want to thank the Cougars for giving me the opportunity to continue growing my game here.”

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
