Andrei is an agile, seven-pound, 12 ounce butterfly-style goaltender. Early reports indicate that Sharks Goaltending Coach Warren Strelow already has Andrei involved in some light puck-stopping drills.
Andrei will be available for the National Hockey League Entry Draft in 2025.
Father Evgeni is expected to join the Sharks in time for their game at Nashville on Feb. 14.
