SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed Forward Chris Tierney to a two-year contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Chris had his best season as a professional last year and stepped up his level of play in multiple areas," said Wilson. "We've always known he was a responsible, defensive-minded player, but he took his offensive game to the next tier and showed that he can be a productive player in all three zones. We look forward to watching him continue his evolution in 2018-19."
Tierney, 24, set career-highs in nearly every major statistical category during the 2017-18 season as he recorded 40 points (17 goals, 23 assists), 118 shots on goal and was one of only three players to play in all 82 games with San Jose. In addition, he ranked fifth on the team in goals, tied for fifth in points, third in faceoff wins (488), fourth in takeaways (50) and led the team in shorthanded points (four) - all of which were career-highs. The fourth-year pro also led all Sharks forwards in shorthanded time on ice per game (1:34), and ranked fourth on Team Teal in penalties drawn (18, according to Natural Stat Trick).
