Barclay Goodrow is officially back with the San Jose Sharks organization for the upcoming season.

The Sharks announced Monday that they have re-signed the 24-year-old left-shooting right winger to a two-year contract.

Goodrow, who was a restricted free agent having completed his entry-level contract, has appeared in 77 NHL games for San Jose over the last three years, splitting time between the big club and its AHL affiliate.

Last season with the San Jose Barracuda, Goodrow scored 25 goals and 45 points — both career highs for him in the minors — in 61 games.

“Barclay played a key role in the success of the Barracuda last season and we feel he took a step forward in his development,” said Sharks assistant general manager and Barracuda GM Joe Will in a statement.

“He took on more of a leadership role with the Barracuda and we look forward to him competing for a spot in the NHL this season.”
