Sharks Continue Adding Defense, Sign Colin White To One-Year Deal

It's something we've preached over and over this offseason: the San Jose Sharks are not going to be complacent. Just the Devin Setoguchi trade for Brent Burns was enough to show how serious the team is in regards to improving on defense. Then they went ahead and extended Burns for five years, but they aren't going to stop there. While this most recent signing isn't as groundbreaking, it's one that will solidify the Sharks' defensive unit:

According to David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News, defenseman Colin White has signed on with San Jose for one year. They'll be paying him $1 million, on top of the $2 million that New Jersey is paying him. White's only in for one year, but that's a great signing at this point in his career. He's not going to come in and play top minutes, but he's going to be a solid contributor and can play on the penalty kill units.

We'll see what else the Sharks have in store this offseason, but right now they're looking stronger than ever. Doug Wilson should get a tip of the hat for this signing.
