SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed restricted free agent forward Tommy Wingels (@TommyWingels) to a three-year contract.
"Tommy stepped forward and made a big commitment to our organization," said Wilson. "He is an important part of our team and a hard working, physical presence in our lineup. He competes the way we want our team to play and we're excited to have his leadership, both on and off the ice, in our locker room for three more seasons."
Sharks winger Tommy Wingels was forced from a game in Boston after taking a high hit from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara with 2:28 to go in the first period. Wingels did not return.

If McLellan had a problem with the Chara hit, he didn’t express it in his postgame presser, although he said earlier he “didn’t have a good angle, so I can’t comment.”
“You know what, every time somebody is hit now we quickly run to the video and we analyze – was it legal, was it illegal? It’s a hard game, and it’s played by hard players that have to get involved physically night in and night out,” said the head coach. “They have to take some lumps, too. We have to give some lumps, we have to take some lumps. If it’s dirty, I think it should be severely dealt with. If it’s hard hockey, than so be it.”
