San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced on Monday that the club has signed Group III Unrestricted Free Agent right wing Josh Langfeld to a one-year deal.
Langfeld, originally a third round selection (66th overall) by the Ottawa Senators in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, finished sixth in scoring for the Binghamton Senators in 2004-05, posting 57 points (32 goals [T-3rd on the team] and 25 assists) along with 75 penalty minutes in 74 games.
In 2003-04, Langfeld spent 38 games with the Ottawa Senators and scored 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists). Through 51 NHL games, all with Ottawa, Langfeld has posted 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists) with 22 penalty minutes.
The six-foot-three, 215-pound native of Fridley, Minnesota played four seasons (1997-01) with the University of Michigan, including scoring the game-winning, overtime goal to defeat Boston College for the 1998 NCAA Championship.
San Jose also made several roster moves following the conclusion of the Pacific Division Shootout rookie tournament. Four players (G Jason Churchill to Halifax, G Taylor Dakers to Kootenay, D Derek Joslin to Ottawa, Marc-Edouard Vlasic to Quebec) were returned to their junior clubs. Two tryout players (D Matt Deschamps, C Ryan Salvis) were released.
