Statement From Doug Wilson

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) General Manager Doug Wilson today released the following statement:

"I want to thank John Tavares and Pat Brisson for their interest in the San Jose Sharks and professionalism throughout this negotiation process. While we are naturally disappointed in the final decision, it's extremely heartening to know that the top players in this league consistently view San Jose as a place they want to play. This is echoed by our own world-class players, such as Logan Couture, Brent Burns, Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski, Evander Kane, Marc-Edouard Vlasic and Martin Jones, who have continually chosen to bypass a chance at unrestricted free agency in recent years because they want to play in San Jose.

"This success can be directly attributed to owner Hasso Plattner, whose passionate support and financial commitment to bring a winner to San Jose is second to none in all of professional sports.

"Looking forward, we remain in an excellent position to add to our group should the right situation present itself and as I stated a few weeks ago, we're very excited about our team as it stands heading into next season."
