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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
