Today, the Sharks hope they’ve replaced that toughness by inking forward Brandon Bollig to a one-year contract.
“Bollig is a competitive player who will add a tough edge to the Sharks,” said San Jose GM Doug Wilson. “He brings with him a lot of playoff experience and a Stanley Cup Championship. His grit and physicality will be a great addition to our team.”
It’s reportedly a two-way deal for Bollig. The 30-year-old spent last season with the Calgary Flames’ AHL affiliate in Stockton, scoring 11 goals in 60 games with 136 PIM.
Bollig won a Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013.
