Sharks sign goaltender Alexei Melnichuk

It seems like it’s been months since we’ve heard any hockey news which is unusual for this time of year, so this is helping things feel a little more normal.

The San Jose Sharks signed goaltender Alexei Melnichuk to a two-year, entry-level contract on Monday, the team announced.

Melnichuk, 21, played with SKA St. Petersburg in the Kontinental Hockey League this season. He went 8-5-1, posting a 1.68 goals-against average to go with a .930 save percentage before the season was canceled.

San Jose also signed center Fredrik Handemark, 26, to an entry-level contract. Handemark has played the past five seasons in the Swedish Hockey League.
