Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the San Jose Sharks have signed forward Ben Guite to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Guite, 32, finished second on Springfield (AHL) in points (47, 17 goals and 30 assists) and tied for first in plus/minus (plus-12) in 72 games. Guite, who was the team captain, ranked fourth on the Falcons with 91 penalty minutes.

The right-handed forward has spent time with Boston, Colorado and Nashville, accumulating 45 points (19 goals and 26 assists) in 175 National Hockey League games. The 11-year professional has also posted 264 points (99 goals and 165 assists) in 559 AHL games with Cincinnati, Bridgeport, Providence, Albany, Milwaukee and Springfield.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of Montreal was originally selected by Montreal in the seventh round (172nd overall) of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.
