SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has signed unrestricted free agent left wing T.J. Trevelyan to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Last season with the Worcester Sharks, Trevelyan led the team in goals (28), matching his career high despite missing 17 games due to injury. He notched 44 points (28 goals, 16 assists) in 63 games.
In the AHL Playoffs, he tied for the team lead with four goals, despite missing three games, and finished with six points (four goals, two assists) in eight games.
Trevelyan has played in 271 American Hockey League games with Providence, Iowa and Worcester, posting 182 points (97 goals, 85 assists) and 98 penalty minutes.
The five-foot-nine, 180-pound native of Mississauga, Ontario was played four collegiate seasons at St. Lawrence, where he was one of ten finalists for the Hobey Baker Award in 2005-06. That same season, he left the ECAC in scoring and was named First Team All-American and ECAC Player of the Year.
Sharks decide to go different direction at goaltender. Doug Wilson met with Nabby this morning to give him the news.
Sharks captain Rob Blake is retiring from the NHL after 21 seasons, a source close to the situation has told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area exclusively.
The source said that Blake is waiting until the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals because he did not want to be a distraction while the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers are still playing.
An official announcement could come as early as next week. When contacted by Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, the Sharks declined to comment on the story. Comcast SportsNet Bay Area also reached out to Blake but he has not returned calls.

Speaking of Wallin, he says there’s absolutely nothing to the Swedish media report earlier in the week that he’s signed to play the next two seasons for Lulea of the Swedish Elite League.
What happened, Wallin said, is that his name came up in a meeting between team officials and potential sponsors and that maybe someone was trying to use his name to help on the business side.
When the Sharks acquired the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Wallin from Carolina at the trade deadline, there were reports there that he was considering a move back to Sweden next season. Friday it didn’t sound like that was the direction he was leaning.
