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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
