The Sharks have signed Sam Dickinson.

San Jose selected the 6-foot-3 defenseman with the No. 11 pick of the 2024 NHL Draft.

“Sam is a big, mobile defenseman who brings a strong two-way game and excellent hockey IQ,” Sharks GM Mike Grier said in a team press release. “We’re excited to watch him continue his development as part of our organization.”

Puckpedia had the details of the 18-year-old’s contract, which slides until he turns 20 or plays 10 or more NHL games, whichever comes first.

Chances are, Dickinson returns to the OHL and the London Knights this fall.

The two-way defenseman dominated last year, putting up 18 goals and 52 assists in just 70 games, helping to lead the Knights to Memorial Cup runner-up.

He was selected to the OHL Second All-Star Team.
