Sharks Extend Contract of Assistant GM Joe Will
San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced that the club has extended the contract of assistant general manager Joe Will.

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) general manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has extended the contract of assistant general manager Joe Will.

"Joe is an invaluable member of our hockey department," said Wilson. "We are extremely pleased that he has committed himself to staying and working in San Jose, despite being approached with several opportunities by other NHL clubs. We're fortunate to have him in our organization."

"I have an immense sense of loyalty to the Sharks organization and to the people I work with," said Will. "As a charter member of this franchise, San Jose is where I want to be. I think there is some unfinished business here and we are entering an exciting phase of transitioning the club."

Will works closely with Wilson on all daily departmental functions and his primary responsibilities include contract research and negotiations, scouting operations, fiscal planning, salary cap analysis and hockey administration. He's the lead coordinator and planner for the Sharks training camp, scouting meetings and scouting conference calls each season.

In addition, as general manager of the Worcester Sharks, Will oversees all hockey operations efforts for the Sharks American Hockey League affiliate, including player evaluation, player contracts and player recall and reassignments.

Previously, Will served as the team's director of hockey operations from 2004-2011. A member of the Sharks organization since the franchise's inception in July 1990, he has also previously served as assistant to the general manager and scouting coordinator.

The Bloomington, MN native also works with director of scouting Tim Burke and the Sharks scouting staff in the development and implementation of draft prospect testing, draft table operations and computer scouting analysis.

Since 2003, the Sharks rank second in the NHL in games played (6003) by players selected in the NHL Draft, despite holding the lowest average drafting position (135.22, 30th) of all NHL teams.
