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 was brought into training camp on a tryout basis and ended up earning a contract Monday.

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

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
