Timo Meier signed a four-year contract with the San Jose Sharks on Monday. Financial terms were not released.
The 22-year-old forward, who was a restricted free agent, had NHL career highs in goals (30), assists (36) and points (66) in 78 regular-season games with the Sharks last season and 15 points (five goals, 10 assists) in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
"Timo is one of only a few young, dominant power forwards in the NHL and we're extremely pleased that he stepped forward to make this commitment to the Sharks," San Jose general manager Doug Wilson said. "Timo has elevated himself into a core part of our hockey team and his play last season was a huge part of our success. We feel that his best hockey is still ahead of him."
Selected by San Jose with the No. 9 pick of the 2015 NHL Draft, Meier has 108 points (54 goals, 54 assists) in 193 regular-season games and 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 35 playoff games.

"Tim is a reliable, puck-moving defenseman whose skill set fits the way we want our group to play," Wilson said. "He is also a great teammate and a team-first individual. We're very pleased to keep him in San Jose."
