SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has assigned forward Timo Meier (@MeierTimo) to the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL.
"Timo had an impressive camp. He showed everyone why we selected him where we did," said Sharks Head Coach Peter DeBoer. "He has a nice blend of power, speed and skill and he has a really bright future."
