Jason Demers(5) San Jose Sharks

Heading into his 6th pro year, San Jose Sharks‘ defenseman Jason Demers(5) signs a 1-year extension to play another season for the only team he’s ever suited up for.

He was originally a 7th round pick in 2008 (#186 overall), but played only one full campaign with their AHL affiliate Worcester Sharks before being recalled to the parent club on a more permanent basis during his sophomore season.

The 6’1″ 195 lbs. blue liner had career lows in a lockout shortened 2013 run that was riddled with injuries for the 25-year old.

They are likely thinking he has what it takes to bounce back. He’s never been the most prolific point getter but is mostly steady in his own zone and dishes out enough punishment to attackers that the suits took notice.

He has skated in 205 NHL games scoring 11 goals and 50 assists, while going a +12 plus/minus.
