Sharks Ink Seven Including Scott Parker

San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has re-signed Group II restricted free agents, defenseman Rob Davison, right wing Scott Parker and goaltender Dimitri Patzold to one year deals. In addition, the team has signed goaltender Taylor Dakers, center Joe Pavelski, defenseman Scott Ferguson and forward Graham Mink to standard player contracts.

In 2005-06, Davison, 26, appeared in 69 games and posted a career-high six points (1-5=6). His five assists were also a career best. In addition, Davison finished third on the team in penalty minutes (76), fourth in blocked shots (65) and added 103 hits, good for fifth on the squad.

In 2004-05, Davison spent the beginning of the season playing for Cardiff (Elite Ice Hockey League). In doing so, he became the first NHL player to play in the United Kingdom, posting five points (2-3=5) in 24 games.

In 2003-04, Davison appeared in 55 games for the Sharks posting three points, all assists. In addition, Davison ranked second on the team in penalty minutes (92) and averaged over 14 minutes per game in ice time.

The six-foot-three, 220-pound native of St. Catherine’s, Ontario was selected by San Jose in the fourth round (98th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.

In 2005-06, Parker, 28, who was on the Injured Reserve list for the first 19 games of the season due to a facial injury, scored his first goal of the season on his first shift after being activated. In addition, he earned a season-high 24 penalty minutes against Nashville on Mar. 11. Parker appeared in 10 games for the Sharks, tallying one goal.

In 2003-04, Parker accumulated a team-leading 101 penalty minutes (PIM) in 50 games with the Sharks. In addition, he posted four points (one goal, three assists), scoring his first goal with the Sharks on Dec. 10 at Anaheim. Parker missed the final eight games of the regular season with a hand injury.

Prior to his arrival in San Jose, Parker posted four points (one goal, three assists) and 82 penalty minutes in 43 games with Colorado during the 2002-03 season. Parker also played in his 200th career NHL game on March 29 vs. Phoenix. In 2000-01, the winger captured a Stanley Cup Championship while he was a member of the Avalanche, who drafted him in the first round (20th overall) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.

The six-foot-five, 230-pound native of Hanford, California was acquired by San Jose on June 21, 2003 from Colorado in exchange for a fifth round selection in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

In 2005-06, Patzold, 23, appeared in 33 games with the Sharks top development AHL affiliate, the Cleveland Barons. He posted a 10-21-0 record to go along with a 3.97 goals-against average. Patzold was recalled to San Jose on Oct. 26, 2005 for three games, but served as a backup and did not play.

In 2004-05, Patzold appeared in 41 games for the Barons, leading the team in minutes (2,418), wins (18), and save percentage (0.911). He posted an 18-16-5 record with a shutout in addition to his 2.58 goals-against average, a team best.

The six-foot, 195-pound native of Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan was selected by San Jose in the fourth round (107th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Dakers, 19, posted a 30-15-1 record during the 2005-06 regular season for the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League. Among WHL goaltenders, he was tied for first in save percentage (.926), third in shutouts (8), fifth in goals against average (2.11) and tied for seventh in wins. He was also named the WHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 21.

In three seasons with Kootenay, Dakers posted a 59-34-3 record with a 2.31 goals against average.

“Kootenay has a positive history of developing prospects and Taylor Dakers has benefited greatly from his three seasons with the club,” stated Wilson. “We feel that his work with Kootenay’s General Manager Jeff Chynoweth and Head Coach Cory Clouston have helped him become a legitimate pro prospect.”

The six-foot-two, 170-pound native of Richmond, British Columbia was selected by San Jose in the fifth round (140th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Pavelski, 22, recently completed his second season at the University of Wisconsin helping the Badgers win their sixth NCAA Division I National Championship in school history and earning 2006 RBK Division I Second-Team All-American honors. He finished the 2005-06 season leading the national champions in assists (33), points (56), game-winning goals (6), multi-point games (15), power-play goals (11) and power play points (27) and tied for the lead in shorthanded goals (2). In addition, his 23 goals were second on the team. He set a career high with a 12-game point streak in which he posted 17 points (6-11=17).

During his two-year collegiate career, he totaled 101 points (39-62=101) in 82 games. During his freshman season, he led the Badgers with 45 points (16-29=45) becoming the first rookie since Dany Heatley (99-00) to lead the team in scoring. For his efforts, he was named to the WCHA All-Rookie Team and chosen for USCHO.com and Insidecollegehockey.com All-Rookie.

“We are excited about Joe joining the San Jose Sharks,” said Wilson. “His accomplishments over the past several years speak for themselves. He has made tremendous progress in the last two seasons and that is a testament to the program at Wisconsin and guidance and leadership provided by Head Coach Mike Eaves and his staff. We are looking forward to taking his development to the next level”

The five-foot-eleven, 195-pound native of Plover, Wisconsin was selected by San Jose in the seventh round (205th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

In 2005-06, Ferguson, 33, appeared in 46 games for the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros. He posted 13 points (five goals, eight assists) and finished seventh on the team in penalty minutes (105) and plus/minus, posting a +6 player rating.

The six-foot-one, 195-pound native of Camrose, Alberta has appeared in 218 career NHL games, posting 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists). In addition, Ferguson has accumulated 310 career penalty minutes while appearing for the Edmonton Oilers, the Anaheim Ducks and the Minnesota Wild.

Ferguson was originally signed by the Edmonton Oilers as a free agent in 1994 and made his NHL debut as a member of the Oilers in the 1997-98 season.

Mink, 27, has spent his entire six-year career with the Washington Capitals organization. During the 2005-06 regular season, he appeared in three games with the Capitals without recording a point or penalty minute. In 43 games with Hershey, Washington’s top development affiliate in the American Hockey League, he produced 40 points (21-19=40) in 43 games. In helping lead the Bears to the Calder Cup Championship, he recorded 21 points (8-13=21) in 21 postseason contests.

Making his NHL debut with the Capitals in 2003-04, Mink has appeared in five career NHL contests and has yet to record a point. In 301 career AHL regular season contests with Portland and Hershey, he has registered 187 points (96-91=187) and 375 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-three, 225-pound native of Stowe, Vermont was originally signed by Washington on April 9, 2002.

Can't wait to see some of them in Worcester. Does anyone think that Parker will be in Minors or will he be a mainstay for SJ this year?

P.S. Happy 22000 Post HB29

My guess is Parker will be in the NHL. His deal is worth $575,000.00.

Exact.
Nice signings for the Sharks.
they will make them from a soft team to a decent team.

Parker is a good #1 Fighter,
Davidson a good #2 and Ferguson a tough Defender.

I can't wait to see them playing against the Ducks,Coyotes..

Nice moves by the Sharks.

The Sheriff will hopefully be playing with the big boys. He's old school!

Glad we re-signed them. Hopefully Parker will get more playing time this year...or at least play when the Sharks play Phoenix or Anaheim.

I dont think any of these guys besides davidson will get playing time. He is the only regular on the team and with him signing they have 6 returning starting dmen. They are over stacked in the winger position right now and parker looks to be the odd man out with cheechoo, bernier, grier, ekman, bell, nieminen, michalek and like four guys who will get bumped from center to winger with thoughs spots filled. unless they are playing a very physical team. I like parker and think they need the physicality but come on the sharks dont play that type of hockey and everyone knows that and it sucks. Hey but hopefully im wrong.

Remember how Laraque basically sent an aged and concussion prone Reaper into oblivion with a couple terrible beatings? I can see Laraque sending Parker to the DL with concussion problems. I'm glad to see him sign and hope to see him, but with 8 games against Laraque, it will be a very tough thing for him to see the Big Guy so many times...

Great to see Davison back, really like that guy and hope he plays all the time.

If he's healthy he can still hang with pretty much anyone. He's one tough SOB. Never reached his potential but is still a very good fighter. I hope he's in the NHL.

I was wondering when someone would come in with the sherrif references. He's more like Barney Fife until he can get his noggin problems straightened out. I dont hold out much hope for him but I sure hope he makes it and has an impact.
