Report: Drew Remenda won't return as Sharks color analyst

According to a local radio station, the Sharks opted not to renew their contract with the longtime TV color man.

It appears as though the Sharks' offseason rebuild will extend beyond their roster. According to local radio personality Rich Lieberman, beloved television color analyst Drew Remenda will not return in that capacity next season as the Sharks reportedly did not offer him a new contract.

Drew became the team's television color analyst in 1999 and has served in that capacity since, with the exception of the 2006-07 season when he took a job with CBC's Hockey Night In Canada in order to be closer to his family. Here's Drew's tearful goodbye from the last time he left the broadcast team:

UPDATE: David Pollak of the Mercury News confirms Drew will not be returning:
