Gambrell arrived at the Sharks development camp last month, stronger and faster than he was at his first camp. He also came with an upgraded resume, which includes an NCAA Tournament championship with the University of Denver.

Catching up with Dan Boyle

Former NHL defenseman enjoying time with family, contemplating future in management

by Kaitlyn Kaminski / NHL.com Staff Writer

Dan Boyle spent 17 grueling seasons as an NHL defenseman, and after his retirement following the 2015-16 season, a career in hockey coaching or management might have been a logical next step.

But instead, the 41-year-old has taken an alternate path. Having missed spending time with his wife, Amber, and two daughters during so many hockey seasons, Boyle said he enjoys being a stay-at-home father in Los Gatos, California, outside San Jose, and is building a home in the area.

Joshua Norris of Sharks in mold of San Jose veteran Logan Couture

Center prospect's athleticism could propel him to NHL

by Eric Gilmore / NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- Soon after the San Jose Sharks drafted center Joshua Norris with the No. 19 pick of the 2017 NHL Draft, his skill set -- physical and mental -- was compared to that of Sharks center Logan Couture.

Norris, 18, worked his way up the draft board with a spectacular performance at the NHL Scouting Combine, where he ranked first in five of the 14 fitness tests, including the vertical jump, standing long jump and shuttle run.

"I think you definitely have to push yourself in the weight room," said Norris (6-foot, 189 pounds). "I feel like that's a big reason why I am so athletic. A lot of legs, a lot of core. Not the most fun stuff, but definitely the things you need to be a hockey player."

Thornton decided to return to the San Jose Sharks. He wanted Marleau to return too, so badly apparently he was willing to take less money to make it happen. General manager Doug Wilson said Thornton agreed to a one-year contract on Friday with different versions of compensation depending on the circumstances.

Center Joe Thornton signed a one-year contract to return to the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.

"I think one year works at this point in my career," Thornton said. "Just really go year-by-year and just see how I feel. I feel like I've got a lot left in the tank, and hopefully after this deal I'll keep signing. But I felt comfortable with it. The team felt comfortable with it. It's that simple, I guess."
