Report: Brian Campbell Heading to UFA

From Bruce Garrioch in Off the Post,

Defenceman Brian Campbell will be going to the unrestricted free agent market. [...]

Campbell has informed the Sharks he won’t be back.

Mind you, I’ve not been Garrioch’s biggest fan today.

Update 4:28pm ET: I’ve changed the title of this post to add “Report.”  According to David Pollak at the Mercury News Sharks blog, GM Doug Wilson is meeting with Campbell’s agent this afternoon.

Update 9:05pm ET: Pollak updated his blog post with this comment:

Doug Wilson is totally denying the report on the Ottawa Sun blog site that Brian Campbell has told the Sharks he will not be returning. Wilson said he talked with Campbell today and is having dinner with agent Larry Kelly tonight, and that negotiations are continuing.

“Tremendously false,” Wilson called the report that Campbell had told the Sharks he would not re-sign with them. “The accurate report is that we’ve got a scheduled discussion on this negotiation tonight and tomorrow. Nothing has changed that.”

Quite the day Garrioch is having today…
