SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) general manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed forward Dillon Hamaliuk to a standard, entry-level contract. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"Dillon is a rare power forward with a scorer's touch," said Wilson. "He's always one of the most competitive players on the ice and creates headaches for his opposition. We especially want to thank Kelowna Rockets President Bruce Hamilton and Head Coach Adam Foote for their commitment to Dillon and helping him excel on and off the ice.
Hamaliuk, 18, is currently an alternate captain with Kelowna (WHL), where he is fifth on the team in scoring with ten points (five goals, five assists) in 12 games.
For the second consecutive season, he has been selected to represent Team WHL in the CIBC Canada Russia Series, which will take place Nov. 4-14 in Saint John, Moncton, Kitchener, London, Saskatoon, and Prince Albert.
Last season, Hamaliuk played in only 31 games with Seattle (WHL) but still managed 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists).
The six-foot-four, 195-pound native of Leduc, Alberta was drafted by San Jose in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft (55th overall).
