Scott, Fedun sign one-year contracts with Sharks
Unrestricted free agent forward John Scott has signed a one-year contract with the San Jose Sharks worth a reported $700,000, and unrestricted free agent defenseman Taylor Fedun has signed a one-year contract with the Sharks.

The San Jose Sharks signed free-agent forward John Scott and free-agent defenseman Taylor Fedun each to a one-year contract Wednesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but CSNBayArea.com reports Scott will make $700,000.

Scott, 31, had one goal and 125 penalty minutes in 56 games with the Buffalo Sabres last season.

The 6-foot-8, 259-pound forward has two goals, six points and 430 penalty minutes in 236 games with the Minnesota Wild, Chicago Blackhawks, New York Rangers and Sabres.

"John brings a physical, no-nonsense element to our lineup," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. "As we integrate more younger players to our team, John's presence alone can act as a deterrent and help keep teams and opposing players honest."

Fedun, 26, had two goals in four games with the Edmonton Oilers last season, and 10 goals and 38 points in 65 games with the Oilers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons.

On his official Twitter account, Fedun wrote: "I am extremely excited and grateful for a new opportunity with @SanJoseSharks can't for September to roll around!"

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
