Sharks give Zubrus a tryout

8 Comments

Dainius Zubrus has joined the San Jose Sharks on a tryout basis, CSNCalifornia.com has learned.

Zubrus, 37, is an unrestricted free agent. He had a tryout with the Blues last month, but was later released. He played 74 games with the Devils last season, scoring just four goals with six assists. His contract was then bought out.

So, does he have a chance to stick with San Jose?

Well, Sharks coach Pete DeBoer coached Zubrus in New Jersey, so there’s familiarity there. And San Jose’s bottom six has not produced this season, so it’s not like the competition is too stiff.

We’d say he’s got a decent opportunity.

The Sharks play the Bruins in Boston tomorrow.
