Sheng’s Daily: Jones Signs with Flyers, Pederson Has “Real Good Upside”



What did Joe Pavelski say to Andrew Cogliano to steer him to the San Jose Sharks? What happened in Minnesota that led Nick Bonino to San Jose?

Inside the Bonino, Cogliano, and James Reimer signings:

They aren’t Bonino, Cogliano & Reimer circa 2016, but the trio can still be very important additions to the San Jose Sharks — here’s how:

In other San Jose Sharks news…

The San Jose Sharks also sent a 2024 fourth-rounder to Arizona for center Lane Pederson.

They moved quickly to sign the 23-year-old RFA:

Pederson may end up as a Sharks sleeper:

Doug Wilson concurred: “He’s a player that we’ve liked for a while. We got to see him a lot playing down in Tucson. They brought him up later in the year. He’s a right-shot centerman, he can skate. He’s got size to him. He’s a guy that our amateur guys have followed since juniors.

“This is a guy that has the skill-set, we think, to be able to come in and compete for a spot on this team.

“We just looked at this as an opportunity to add another really good player with a real good upside.”
