Sharks GM Doug Wilson vows to rebuild after playoff : 'We're a tomorrow team'

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have signed goalie Alex Stalock and forward Mike Brown to two-year contracts.

General manager Doug Wilson announced the moves on Tuesday as he begins looking ahead to rebuilding the team this off-season. Stalock and Brown were eligible for unrestricted free agency.

Stalock went 12-5-2 with a 1.87 goals against average in 24 games last season.

Brown had two goals and three assists in 48 games.

Wilson is looking ahead to an off-season rebuild after the Sharks blew a 3-0 series in a first-round playoff loss to Los Angeles. Wilson says he expects the team to take a step or two backward this season before they can achieve their ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
