NHL Free Agency Rumors: Sharks ‘closing in on Re-signing' Timo Meier

With NHL free agency just getting underway, it looks like the Sharks are close to locking up another key member of their core.

The Sharks reportedly are close to re-signing restricted free agent Timo Meier, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reported Monday.

The deal reportedly would be a fairly team-friendly one, per LeBrun.

With the departure of Joe Pavelski, Joonas Donskoi and Gustav Nyquist appearing more and more likely, this is a big keep for San Jose.

Meier, 22, is coming off a season in which he notched 66 points (30 goals, 36 assists) and was 17th in five-on-five goals and 20th in five-on-five points.
