The Sharks aren’t actively shopping Mario Ferraro.

That’s what Ferraro's agent, Peter Wallen, told San Jose Hockey Now yesterday. Wallen, via text, summarized a conversation last week with Sharks general manager Mike Grier: “Everybody is tradable. But not looking to trade him actively.”

So while that doesn’t guarantee Ferraro will remain with San Jose past the March 8 Trade Deadline, there’s a pretty good chance that the alternate captain is going to stay put.

Ferraro, 25, has two years left on his contract after this season with a $3.25 million average annual value.

The left-hander is a minute-munching defensive-oriented defenseman, who’s averaged over 22 minutes per night over the past four years, and his puck play has improved this season.
