SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has assigned goaltender Thomas Greiss to Brynas of the Swedish Elite League.
In 19 career NHL games with San Jose, Greiss has posted a 7-5-2 record with a 2.77 goals-against average. He was assigned to Worcester (AHL) on Oct. 13, but did not appear in a game.
“We’ve always had a commitment to goaltender development and we feel that Thomas has a great chance to play a lot of games and continue his improvement with Brynas,” stated Wayne Thomas, Assistant General Manager of the San Jose Sharks.
The six-foot-one, 210-pound goaltender was selected by the Sharks in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft (3rd round, 94th overall).
