Sharks lock up goalie tandem, sign Hill to two-year deal


The Sharks' goaltending situation has been settled.

San Jose announced Thursday it had signed Adin Hill to a two-year contract. Hill, whom the Sharks acquired from the Arizona Coyotes last month, had filed for salary arbitration as a restricted free agent, but was able to come to an agreement with his new team beforehand.

"We're pleased to get Adin under contract solidifying our goaltending position for the coming season," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said in a team statement. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Hill, 25, appeared in 19 games last season for Arizona, earning a 9-9-1 record with a .913 save percentage (SV%) and 2.74 goals-against average (GAA) along with two shutouts. Over the course of his NHL career, he has appeared in 49 games, earning a 19-21-4 record with a 2.79 GAA and .909 SV%.

With Hill's deal done, the Sharks have their goalie tandem locked up for the next two seasons. San Jose also signed James Reimer to a two-year contract on the first day of free agency.
