Sharks give qualifying offers to RFAs Demers, Wingels, Sheppard, Tennyson, Doherty, Sateri

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Sharks have issued qualifying offers to restricted free agent defenceman Jason Demers, forwards Tommy Wingels and James Sheppard and three other players.

Defencemen Matt Tennyson and Taylor Doherty and goalie Harri Sateri also got qualifying offers Monday, giving the Sharks the right to match any offer in free agency or get compensation in return.

Defencemen Sena Acolatse, Adam Comrie and Nick Petricki; and forwards Brodie Reid, Sebastian Stalberg and Marek Viedensky are unrestricted free agents after not getting qualifying offers.

Defenceman Scott Hannan and forward Bracken Kearns will be unrestricted free agents on Tuesday and the Sharks have also bought out forward Marty Havlat's contract to make him an unrestricted free agent.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
