The Sharks have re-signed forward Barclay Goodrow to a two-year contract extension, the club announced on Monday.
The contract, a two-way deal, is worth $650,000 at the NHL level for both years according to a source.
Goodrow, 24, has spent most of the past two seasons playing for the AHL Barracuda. In 61 games last season for the Sharks’ primary minor league affiliate, Goodrow posted 45 points (25g, 20a) in 61 games, leading the team in goals. In three games with the Sharks, he had one assist.

Goodrow could compete for a spot on the Sharks’ roster at training camp, likely as a fourth liner, as the Sharks will look to their youth to help generate more offense.
"Barclay played a key role in the success of the Barracuda last season and we feel he took a step forward in his development," Sharks assistant general manager Joe Will said in a statement. "He took on more of a leadership role with the Barracuda and we look forward to him competing for a spot in the NHL this season."
Goodrow, a Toronto native, was originally signed by the Sharks as a free agent on March 16, 2014. He played 60 games with San Jose in 2014-15, posting 12 points (4g, 8a), but has played in just 17 NHL games the past two seasons.
Goodrow was the final restricted free agent that was qualified by the Sharks to sign an extension.
