The San Jose Sharks have a new goaltender…for next year, that is.

Magnus Chrona, fresh off a successful four-year run with the University of Denver Pioneers, highlighted by a 2022 NCAA championship, has signed a two-year contract with the Sharks beginning with the 2023-24 season.

Chrona, as an NCAA prospect, would’ve become a free agent on Aug. 15 if he and the Sharks had failed to reach an agreement. The 22-year-old joins Kaapo Kahkonen as the only goalies in the San Jose organization signed for 2023-24 as of now.

“He brings size and athleticism to the crease, along with a strong compete level,” San Jose Sharks GM Mike Grier said in the team press release. “We are happy to have him and excited to watch his game develop.”

San Jose Hockey Now first reported three weeks ago that Chrona was likely to “stick with San Jose.”

Chrona’s rights were acquired by the San Jose Sharks during the 2021 Trade Deadline from the Tampa Bay Lightning for journeyman defenseman Fredrik Claesson. The Lightning had drafted the 6-foot-5 goalie in the fifth round of the 2018 Draft.

Chrona was 22-9-0 with a .916 Save % in his recently-concluded senior season.
