Sharks re-sign F Sheppard and D Petrecki

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks are bringing back forward James Sheppard and defenseman Nick Petrecki on one-year contracts.

The Sharks announced both deals Friday, one day before the start of the NHL season.

Sheppard has played 34 games this season with Worcester of the AHL with eight goals and 15 assists.

In 224 career NHL games with Minnesota, Sheppard has 11 goals and 38 assists. He was acquired by the Sharks on Aug. 7, 2011, for a third-round pick in this year's draft.

Petrecki played in 16 games this season with Worcester and had one goal and two assists. In 68 games last season with Worcester, Petrecki had a goal and eight assists.

Petrecki, chosen by San Jose with the 28th pick in the 2007 draft, hasn't played an NHL game.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
