San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has recalled center Grant Stevenson from the Cleveland Barons, the Sharks top development affiliate of the American Hockey League.
In 17 games with the Barons this season, Stevenson has posted a team-leading 16 points (eight goals, eight assists), along with eight penalty minutes.
Last season, Stevenson was tied for fourth on the Barons in scoring (39 points) and third in assists (25). In 2003-04, his first season with Cleveland, Stevenson finished 13th among all AHL rookies with 39 points (13-26=39) in 71 games.
In 2002-03, Stevenson was T-fifth in NCAA scoring with Minnesota State-Mankato (WCHA), posting 27 goals and 36 assists for 63 points in only 38 games, as well as T-second among all NCAA goal scorers. He was named to the JOFA Division I All-American Team and All-WCHA First Team.
The native of Spruce Grove, Alberta, was signed by San Jose as a free agent on April 18, 2003. His grandfather is the legendary NHL goaltender Glenn Hall.
