Aaron Dell signed a two-year contract with the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old goalie could have become an unrestricted free agent July 1. He is 14-5-3 with a 2.71 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 25 games (20 starts) this season.
"Aaron has met every challenge he has faced in his career head-on and our team is a confident group when he's in the net," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. "He's a very popular guy in the dressing room and we feel that Aaron and Martin [Jones] give us one of the top goaltending tandems in the League."
Dell is 25-11-4 with a 2.39 GAA and .920 save percentage in 45 games for the Sharks, who signed him as a free agent March 4, 2015.
