Sharks re-sign Evander Kane to seven-year deal

Source sports.yahoo.com. | 1 day ago.

"At only 26 years old, Evander has established himself as one of hockey's true power forwards and an impact player," said Wilson. It's extremely heartening to have Evander join a trend of elite players who have chosen to remain in San Jose. Kane posted 14 points (nine goals, five assists) in 17 games with San Jose, including his first career hat trick and four-goal game on March 26 at Calgary, after being acquired at the 2018 NHL Trade Deadline.

The San Jose Sharks are closing in on a seven-year contract with Evander Kane that will keep the high-scoring forward off the free-agent market. Kane, who turns 27 in August, was acquired from Buffalo at the trade deadline. Under the terms of that trade, the Sabres will now get a first-round pick in 2019 instead of a second-rounder because Kane signed with San Jose.

Long-term extension would make sense for Coyotes, Ekman-Larsson

Source sports.yahoo.com. | 8 days ago.

The Arizona Coyotes and Oliver Ekman-Larsson are in talks about a possible eight-year contract extension that would carry a cap hit of a bit more than $8 million per season, according to Craig Morgan of ArizonaSports.com. Do note that, whether a deal is actually close to be agreed upon or the situation is fluid, an extension wouldn’t become official until July, when “OEL” is first eligible for such a contract. Ekman-Larsson (26, turning 27 on July 17) is currently on a deal with a $5.5M cap hit and $7M salary heading into 2018-19.

It was an ideal start for the Winnipeg Jets in Game 1 of the Western Conference Final. The Jets took all of 65 seconds before breaking the 0-0 deadlock, thanks a Dustin Byfuglien blast. It was initially ruled no goal due to goaltender interference, but Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice smartly used his challenge and the call was overturned.

Emrick not surprised at the play of Fleury in leading Vegas

Michael "Doc" Emrick is a bit surprised about the success of the expansion Vegas Golden Knights, but not about goalie Marc Andre Fleury's role in leading the team deep into the NHL playoffs. The longtime hockey announcer who does games for NBC said a hot goalie can carry a team at times, and told co-hosts Jim Litke and Tim Dahlberg on the "PodcastOne Sports Now" show that Fleury had some big moments in his 14 years in Pittsburgh before being left unprotected in the expansion draft before the season began. Emrick said Fleury seems re-energized in Las Vegas and comfortable in his role as a team leader.

San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton told reporters Tuesday that the right knee injury he suffered Jan. 23 included full tears of the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. The team announced Jan. 25 that Thornton had undergone an arthroscopic procedure on the knee to repair a torn MCL, but no news of an ACL tear had since been reported. The 38-year-old was not able to get back on the ice before the Sharks were eliminated from the playoffs by the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday, despite skating and preparing to return to action.

The scene was all too familiar for the San Jose Sharks: a postgame handshake line on their home ice with the other team celebrating a series win while the Sharks wonder what might have been. A team that seemed to have the ingredients necessary for a long playoff run went out instead in the second round with a 3-0 loss Sunday in Game 6 against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights. ''For periods of this series I thought we were a better team, I thought we played the game that we know we're capable of, we showed we could beat them,'' forward Logan Couture said.

Futures of Thornton, Kane among key questions for Sharks

With long-term commitments to Brent Burns, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, and Martin Jones (not to mention some mid-term deals for less prominent pieces), the San Jose Sharks are largely “set” on defense and in net. Plenty of questions lingered as members of the Sharks addressed the media on Tuesday. For one thing, it’s more than reasonable to wonder about how viable Thornton can be.

Luck can be a cruel thing in hockey, and that thought has been especially evident for the San Jose Sharks in their do-or-die Game 6 against the Vegas Golden Knights. There were times when the bounces felt a little ridiculous during the first period, which ended 0-0 despite Marc-Andre Fleury being sent scrambling. At least the Sharks got this wonderful tweet for their troubles.

The crew of castoffs that carried the expansion Vegas Golden Knights to a division title and two rounds of playoffs wins in a reality-defying season are more than just a feel-good story. Marc-Andre Fleury was his usual brilliant self with 28 saves in his fourth shutout of the postseason and Vegas benefited from a couple of fortunate bounces to advance to the Western Conference Final with a 3-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday. The Golden Knights have done that all season despite being thrown together at the expansion draft last June among players deemed expendable by their former teams.

If the San Jose Sharks must be sacrificed for the greater good of The Story, then that's how it has to be. The Vegas Golden Knights, the closest thing hockey has produced that rivals the 2016 Leicester City team and the 1969 New York Mets, polished off the Sharks in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinal, 3-0, and they earned every single bit of it. Now that the safety warning has issued, here's to the Sharks, who simply lost to a superior team.

Vegas Golden Knights fans, are your heart rates returning to normal yet? The Golden Knights hopped back on their magical playoff ride on Friday night in Sin City, but they sure didn’t make it easy on themselves after amassing a 4-0 lead through the first 50 minutes of the game. Few figured the Golden Knights were going to roll over and die off after getting shutout in Game 3, and while they showed no signs of any lingering effects in Game 5 early following their worst loss of the playoffs two days earlier, things certainly got shaky in the third period.
