Sharks Sign Four
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has signed defenseman Taylor Doherty, center Marek Viedensky, goaltender Harri Sateri and unrestricted free agent goaltender Carter Hutton. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Doherty, 19, recently completed his third season with the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League. The six-foot-seven, 220 lb. defenseman served as an alternate captain with Kingston and posted 44 points (16 goals, 28 assists) placing him first among all Kinston blueliners in each category. He finished third amongst all OHL defensemen in goals and was 15th in points. His 114 penalty minutes were second on the team

The native of Cambridge, Ontario was selected by San Jose in the second round (57th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Viedensky, 19, split the season between Prince George and Saskatoon in the Western Hockey League. With 59 points (20 goals, 39 assists) in 61 games, he finished tied-for-fourth on Saskatoon in points, fifth in goals and T-third in assists. He also posted 10 points (seven goals, three assists) in 10 playoff games with the Blades and was named the team’s Playoff MVP.

Viedensky also represented Slovakia and the U-20 World Junior Championships, finishing with six points (one goal, five assists) in six games.

The Handlova, Slovakia native was selected by San Jose in the seventh round (189th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

Sateri, 20, played in 49 games with Tappara in the Finnish Elite League posting a 2.73 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage. He also helped Tappara advance to the second round of the playoffs.

Sateri was selected by San Jose in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Hutton finished his senior year at UMass-Lowell in 2010, playing in 27 games and posting a 2.04 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage, along with a 13-12-2 record and four shutouts. He finished fourth among all NCAA goaltenders in goals-against average (led Hockey East) and his save percentage was third in the nation among goaltenders who played at least 33% of their team’s minutes. He won the Bauer Goaltending Champion Award for the best combined goalie stats in the Conference, as well as being named to the Hockey East Second Team All-Stars.

The six-foot-one, 200-pound native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Hutton completed his four-year career with the River Hawks with a 34-41-10 record, 2.33 GAA and .913 save percentage, including 10 shutouts in 85 collegiate games. He is the school’s all-time leader in GAA (2.33), shutouts (10) and tied for the all-time lead in save percentage (.913).

Hutton was recalled by the Philadelphia Flyers in late March after he signed an amateur tryout agreement with Adirondack of the American Hockey League. He appeared in four games with Adirondack, posting a 1-2-1 record and a 2.71 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
