SAN JOSE — The Sharks announced Thursday they have signed defenseman Jason Demers and forward Brodie Reid to one-year contracts.
Demers, 25, a restricted free agent, battled injuries this season and had three points in 22 games. He also played one game for the Sharks in the second round of the playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings. In 2011-2012, Demers had 13 points and 22 penalty minutes.
"Jason is a highly competitive puck moving defenseman that creates offense from the back end," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a statement. "We're looking forward to seeing him come back healthy and continue his growth with us."
"I just wanted to be back in San Jose ... and I'm just looking for a chance to prove myself," Demers said. "It's great they showed me a vote of confidence like that and get the opportunity for another year. So I'm excited and ready to go."
Reid, 23, played 34 games for Worcester Sharks this season and had 21 points and 19 penalty minutes.
The Sharks signed Andrew Desjardins and James Sheppard on Wednesday, leaving TJ Galiardi as their only major remaining restricted free agent yet to be signed for next season.
