Sharks Recall Defenseman Matt Irwin from Worcester
 
SAN JOSE, California – San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Matt Irwin from the Worcester Sharks, the team’s top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

Irwin, 24, is tied for the team lead with 16 points (7-9=16), which are tied for the fourth most amongst AHL defensemen, in 21 games played. His seven goals are tied for second in the AHL and rank second on the team overall. Six of his goals have come on the power play, which lead all AHL defensemen and are tied for sixth overall in the League.

Irwin has never appeared in an NHL game. In 96 career games with Worcester over the past three seasons, he has posted 47 points (17-30=47) and 53 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-two, 210-pound native of Brentwood Bay, British Columbia was originally signed by San Jose as a free agent on March 23, 2010.

The team also placed defenseman Douglas Murray on injured reserve.
