The San Jose Sharks are bringing back Alexander Barabanov and Jaycob Megna.

Barabanov, 27, received a two-year contract with a $2.5 million dollar AAV.

The pending UFA winger notched 39 points in 70 games this past season, proving to be a solid complement in a top-six role. The relatively-low cap hit might be a surprise – unless you’ve kept up with the latest Barabanov info at San Jose Hockey Now.

Megna, 29, received a two-year contract with a $762,500 AAV.

The pending UFA defenseman stepped in this year when the Sharks’ blueline was decimated by injuries and provided steady play. It’s a one-way contract, a reward for an AHL journeyman who might finally have firmly established himself as an NHL’er.

So what’s the cap situation look like for the San Jose Sharks, now they’ve signed their last two significant UFA’s? How much space can they clear if they buy out Marc-Edouard Vlasic and trade Radim Simek? And what’s the latest on the Evander Kane grievance?
