After a solid rookie season, the San Jose Sharks announced the 2-year contract extension of defenseman Jason Demers this week.
Demers racked up 4 goals and 21 points last season in only 51 games. That gets him a No. 4 ranking among Sharks defense. The 2008 seventh round pick also totaled 17 points in 21 games for the Sharks top minor league affiliate.
Barring any last minute low profile signings, the Sharks roster looks to be pretty set. They will open the 2010-2011 season Oct. 8 in Stockholm, Sweden against the Columbus Bluejackets.
