Niclas Wallin, Scott Nichol and Andrew Desjardins will be back wearing the teal next season (barring any trades) at least for one more year. Financial terms were not immediately available. Nichol and Wallin figure to be important pieces to San Jose's depth.
"We knew when we brought Scott in last season that he was ultra-competitive," said Wilson. "Not only did he meet that expectation, but he also brought a very business-like mentality to the rink each night, stepping up as a leader and an important centerman for us."
"Niclas is a physical veteran presence and will help solidify our blueline," stated Wilson. "We were proud of the way he battled through a tough injury during the playoffs and are looking forward to having him at full health."
The Sharks now have nine forwards, six defensemen, and one goalie under contract.
