If Filip Zadina fulfills his potential with the San Jose Sharks, you can thank David Quinn.

Yesterday, the Sharks announced that they had signed the sixth-overall pick of the 2018 Draft to a one-year, $1.1 million contract. It’s a prove-it deal for a sniper who’s scored just 28 goals in 190 games over parts of five NHL seasons.

“I chose the Sharks because after I spoke with coach Quinn, we had a good conversation, we were on the same line talking about how I can help the team and how the team can help me to prove my game and become a better player,” the 23-year-old told San Jose media this afternoon. “It was after that call, it was pretty much easy to decide where I want to go.”

Zadina’s agent Darren Ferris told San Jose Hockey Now that he “had higher dollar offers, but wanted to go to San Jose after speaking to Quinny.”
