SAN JOSE – San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the team has re-signed Group III unrestricted free agent defenseman Rob Blake to a one-year contract. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Blake, 39, finished his 18th NHL season in 2008-09, recording 45 points (10 goals, 35 assists) in 73 games with San Jose. He finished eighth among League defensemen in shots with 198 and tied for 16th in points. Blake recorded his 500th NHL career assist on Jan. 9 at Edmonton, placing him 22nd all-time for assists amongst NHL defensemen. He was selected as the Seagate “Sharks Player of the Month” for November, leading all League defensemen for the month with 16 points (five goals, 11 assists).
“Rob’s performance this past season speaks for itself,” said Wilson. “He’s a true professional, a leader that has been a captain in the League and still plays at an elite level. The way that he carries himself day-in and day-out is something that every player in our locker room should try to mirror.”
