Here’s a running guide of what’s going with the San Jose Sharks on Day 1 of free agency.

4:27 PM

It’s official: Anthony Duclair for Steven Lorentz and a Sharks’ 2025 fifth-round pick.

BREAKING: Sharks Acquire Duclair for Lorentz

4:02 PM

3:29 PM

3:19 PM

3:00 PM

The Sharks announce a two-way, two-year contract with Scott Sabourin. He’s going to be a solid AHL citizen for the Barracuda.

2:58 PM

Sharks Sign Blackwood, Burroughs, Smith, Carpenter

2:43 PM

From what I understand, there was mutual interest between the Sharks and Gustafsson if Karlsson was traded. But Karlsson hasn’t been dealt yet, and this suggests that a Karlsson swap isn’t very, very close. If you’re a Gustafsson, you have to jump on the offers that are out there, you can’t necessarily wait for the Karlsson mess to shake out.

12:39 PM

Kyle Criscuolo is headed to the New Jersey Devils.

12:32 PM

Darren Dreger reports that Jeffrey Viel is signing with the Winnipeg Jets. One year, one-way, $775K.

12:26 PM

REPORT: Penguins, Kraken, Canes After Karlsson?

12:14 PM

11:52 AM

Sharks announce the signing of forward Ryan Carpenter to a one-year, two-way contract.

11:35 AM

Scratch another buy-low defenseman off the San Jose Sharks’ list: They haven’t reached out on Ethan Bear.

11:34 AM

Is Karlsson to Pens close?

11:24 AM

Jeff Marek says Daniel Sprong to the Detroit Red Wings for one-year, $2 million. That’s another buy-low wing candidate for the Sharks off the board.

10:28 AM

LeBrun says Canes still in on Karlsson after Dmitry Orlov signing.

10:24 AM

I thought Denis Gurianov might be a good buy-low opportunity, but I don’t think the Sharks have checked in as of now.

10:10 AM

Furthermore to what I’m suggesting about Gustafsson to the Sharks, they haven’t talked to Kevin Shattenkirk, another experienced candidate to soak up power play minutes if Karlsson is dealt.

9:50 AM

Ex-San Jose Sharks goalie James Reimer is now with the Detroit Red Wings.

9:46 AM

Elliotte Friedman reports that Kyle Burroughs has signed with the San Jose Sharks for three years, $3.3 million.

9:37 AM

I believe, if the San Jose Sharks can conclude an Erik Karlsson trade relatively quickly, that there could be a mutual interest between the Sharks and defenseman Erik Gustafsson. Gustafsson would take on some of Karlsson’s offensive responsibilities.

9:29 AM

MacKenzie Blackwood has signed for two years, $4.7 million. After the Sharks didn’t qualify Blackwood, both San Jose Hockey Now and the Mercury News reported that the Sharks and Blackwood were talking new contract.

8:41 AM

Pierre LeBrun says Erik Karlsson is being allowed to talk directly to interested teams. That’s a change. They’re definitely trying to get this done. Seattle Kraken, Carolina Hurricanes, and Pittsburgh Penguins among teams most interested.
