Sharks Re-Sign Defenseman Matt Tennyson

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed restricted free agent defenseman Matt Tennyson (@Tenner_7) to a two-year contract.

"Matt is a young, puck-moving defenseman with the vision to create offense from the back end," said Wilson. "We are excited to watch him progress as we continue the process of committing to the younger players in our organization."

In 2013-14, Tennyson posted 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) and 33 penalty minutes in 54 games with the Worcester Sharks (AHL). He finished the year ranked first amongst all team defensemen in goals (seven), second in points (21), and third in assists (14).
The 24-year-old Tennyson has appeared in 121 career AHL games, collecting 50 points (13 goals, 37 assists). He has played four career games at the NHL level, posting two assists and a plus-two rating, including tallying his first career assist in his first NHL game (4/1/13 vs. Vancouver).

The six-foot-two, 205-pound native of Minneapolis, MN, was originally signed by San Jose as an undrafted free agent on March 29, 2012.

"I think all the young guys are definitely ready to make an impact," said Tennyson via conference call. "I think there is already a solid core of guys there that we can make a lot of strides.

"I think you have to take everything in stride. First and foremost I have to make the team out of camp and obviously this summer is a big summer for me with players coming in ready to go and ready to make the team."
