SAN JOSE – San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed Group II restricted free agent forward Devin Setoguchi to a three-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 24-year-old Setoguchi tied for the team-lead in goals (7) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, including scoring overtime game-winners in Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals against the Los Angeles Kings (6-5) and Game Three of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Detroit Red Wings (4-3). He finished tied-for-sixth on the team with 10 points (7-3=10) in 18 playoff games.
Despite a slow start to the 2010-11 regular season which saw him just two goals in the team’s first 31 games (he missed nine of those due to injury), Setoguchi still potted 22 goals, along with 19 assists for 41 points in 72 games. He posted his first career hat trick on Feb. 19 vs. Colorado. Setoguchi set a career high in game-winning goals (5, T-2nd on the team) and was third on the team with 138 hits.
“We feel Devin is an important part of our team and we look forward to him continuing to elevate his game to the level he is capable of,” said Wilson.
