Sharks Sign Four Prospects

Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced on Tuesday that the club has signed four prospects: forwards Frazer McLaren and Steven Zalewski as well as defensemen David MacDonald and Mike Moore.

“We have enjoyed watching David’s progress at Harvard since we drafted him,” said Wilson. “We feel he is ready to take the next step in his professional career and we would like to thank Head Coach Ted Donato and his staff for their substantial role in David’s development.”

MacDonald recently completed his senior season at Harvard University, where he was named to All-Ivy League Second Team. He helped Harvard lead ECAC Hockey for fewest goals allowed (1.86 goals allowed per game) while serving as co-captain of the squad. In 34 games, he tabbed seven points (two goals, five assists), was a plus-seven (T-fifth on the team) and added 26 penalty minutes.

The six-foot-four, 235-pound native of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was originally drafted by San Jose in the seventh round (225th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

“We are very pleased to bring another former draft selection into our organization,” said Wilson. “Frazer has made tremendous strides in Moose Jaw under General Manager Chad Lang and Head Coach Dave Hunchak.”

McLaren (no relation to Sharks defenseman Kyle McLaren), acquired by Moose Jaw from Portland in November 2007, finished the season with 40 points (19 goals, 21 assists) which was good for sixth on the team. He also added 164 penalty minutes, good for first on Moose Jaw and 12th in the WHL.

The six-foot-five, 230-pound forward hails from Winnipeg, Manitoba and was originally drafted by San Jose in the seventh round (203rd overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Moore, 23, recently completed his senior season at Princeton University (ECAC). Named the 2008 ECAC Hockey Defensive Defenseman of the Year, Moore was first among Princeton defenseman in goals (seven), assists (17) and points (24) in 34 games. Moore was named First-Team All-Ivy as well as First-Team All-ECAC Hockey.

The six-foot-one, 200-pound native of Calgary, Alberta, finished his Princeton career with 52 points (14 goals, 38 assists) and 154 penalty minutes in 121 games.

“Steve has had a tremendous collegiate career at Clarkson and he is definitely ready to take the next step in his professional development,” said Wilson. “Head Coach George Roll and his staff have done a great job with Steve and we look forward to integrating him into our system.”

Zalewski led all ECAC goal scorers with 21 (including a league-high in conference play) in 36 games en route to being named to the All-ECAC First Team. Zalewski finished second on Clarkson in points with 33 (21 goals, 12 assists) and was second in penalty minutes with 36.

The six-foot, 190-pound forward from Utica, NY was originally drafted by San Jose in the fifth round (153rd overall) in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
