Sharks Re-Sign Nichol, Wallin, Desjardins

The San Jose Sharks announced today that they have signed centers Scott Nichol and Andrew Desjardins and defenseman Niclas Wallin to one-year contract extensions. Financial terms of all three deals were not disclosed. Nichol and Wallin would have been unrestricted free agents on July 1, while Desjardins would have been a restricted free agent. In 79 games last season with the Sharks, Nichol had four goals and 15 assists for 19 points. Wallin split time last season with the Carolina Hurricanes and San Jose Sharks, scoring seven assists in 70 games. He won the Stanley Cup with Carolina in 2006. Desjardins played in 80 games with Worcester of the AHL, scoring 19 goals and 27 assists for 46 points. These aren't bad signings for the Sharks, as they bring plenty of depth to the team. Nichol is a very competitive player who plays with lots of grit and toughness, while Wallin brings plenty of defensive depth and physical play to the team's blueline. Desjardins is really just a minor league depth signing for the Sharks. He plays with lots of toughness and does have some offensive upside, but given the depth on offense for San Jose next season, he will likely spend most, if not all, of next season in the minors.
