The San Jose Sharks on Wednesday reassigned forward Matt Nieto to the San Francisco Bulls of the ECHL.

The Sharks' second-round pick (No. 47) in the 2011 NHL Draft, Nieto has six points (two goals, four assists) in 23 games with San Jose. He also had five points (two goals, three assists) with Worcester of the American Hockey League.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
