Nothing Official On Contract Talks

by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks
Despite internet reports that the Sharks are close to signing goaltender Evgeni Nabokov and leading goal scorer Jonathan Cheechoo to contract extensions, Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson said today there is no news to announce.

Wilson has previously met with Nabokov’s agent in recent weeks but to date, no deal has been consummated.

However, the Sharks general manager’s track record clearly shows that he prefers being proactive in regards to player contract issues as opposed to waiting until the last possible moment to make key decisions.

Nabokov is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer while Cheechoo would be a restricted free agent at the end of the 2005-06 season.
