Scott Gomez has signed a one year deal with the San Jose Sharks for $700,000. The aging Sharks have looked good this season and after having worked with Gomez over the past few days have agreed to terms with the recently bought out player.
It is not yet known if Gomez will join the team on Thursday night against the Phoenix Coyotes.
The once star of the New Jersey Devils is 33 and has struggled to put up points in Montreal over the past few seasons. Only time will tell if Gomez will help the Sharks, but there is still plenty of hockey left in Gomez’s tank.
Do you think this signing will effect the Western Conference this season? Does this move make the Sharks more of a contender? Let us know your thoughts.
As always, LET’S GO BLUES!
A one-time star with the New Jersey Devils, Gomez, 33, has struggled the past couple of seasons as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. Last season he managed just two goals and nine assists in 38 games, and the Canadiens waived him when the lockout was settled, making him an unrestricted free agent.
