On July 1, the San Jose Sharks lost some toughness when forward Micheal Haley signed with the Florida Panthers.

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.
