Sharks GM Doug Wilson announced today that center Barclay Goodrow will remain a Shark for two more years, signing a two-year contract running through the 2020-21 season.
Kevin Kurz reports that the salary of Goodrow’s deal is expected to be worth $1 million in 2019-20, before going down to $850,000 the following season, with a $925,000 average annual value.
Per a source, Barclay Goodrow will carry a 925k salary cap hit. $1M next season, 850k in 2020-21— Kevin Kurz (@KKurzNHL) October 4, 2018
Doug Wilson remarked in his announcement that “Barclay has impressed us with his attitude, work ethic and dedication to his game, particularly last season as he excelled on the ice for our club... He was an undrafted player we signed who worked his way up through our system, developing with head coach Roy Sommer and the Barracuda staff, before earning his spot with the Sharks. We are excited to watch Barclay excel on and off the ice for our organization.”
The extension more than likely will secure Goodrow’s spot as a 4C, after previously being expected to play on the wings this season. Last year, he hit career highs in goals and points, putting 7 in the back of the net and recording 14 points in total, the majority of those being primary assists.
