San Jose Sharks sign left-wing Brad Winchester to one-year contract

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have signed left wing Brad Winchester to a one-year contract.

Winchester appeared in five pre-season games, posting one goal, one assist and a team-high 18 penalty minutes.

Winchester has played seven years in the NHL with Edmonton, Dallas, St. Louis and Anaheim.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
