Day 1 of free agency was slow for the San Jose Sharks, but San Jose Hockey Now was on the ball.

Stefan Noesen re-signed with the Sharks and SJHN was there at his press conference:

Stefan Noesen Is Back: “Last year was kind of a gong show…but it ended on the best note.”

SJHN confirmed that San Jose reached out to Michael Grabner and didn’t reach out to Mark Borowiecki. We also broke that Melker Karlsson was leaving the Sharks and got an update on Dalton Prout.

Also, we got Doug Wilson’s comments on UFAs Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau — he also suggested that San Jose is in the market for a veteran bottom-pairing defenseman. Finally, we threw some cold water on the idea of Zach Bogosian coming to the Sharks.
