The San Jose Sharks made official a series of moves that have been mostly reported in recent weeks.

They signed pending RFA forward Luke Kunin to a one-year, $2.75 million AAV contract.

San Jose Hockey Now first reported the news and Puckpedia shared contract figures on Friday.

“He’s an unbelievable human being. He’s a great leader. He’s a character guy that I think these young players can watch, how he prepares and how he is a pro,” new San Jose Sharks head coach Ryan Warsofsky said at the Draft. “I can’t say enough good things about Luke Kunin. We need more Luke Kunins.”

The Sharks also re-signed pending UFA Justin Bailey to a one-year, two-way contract, $800,000 in the NHL and $375,000 in the AHL.

SJHN first reported the San Jose Sharks’ interest in re-signing Bailey at the Combine earlier this month.
