TSN hockey insider Darren Dreger is reporting that the San Jose Sharks and Brad Stuart have agreed to a three-year contract at $3.6 million per year.

Stuart, 32, was traded by the Detroit Red Wings to San Jose back on June 10, and the two sides immediately began trying to work out a deal, as Stuart was slated to become an unrestricted free agent. This will be the second go-around in San Jose for Stuart who was a member of the Sharks from when he was drafted in 1998 to 2005.

He played in 81 games during the 2011-2012 season, scoring six goals and 15 assists. More importantly, he led the Red Wings with 177 hits and was second in blocked shots with 115.
