The San Jose Sharks have nine pending unrestricted free agents (UFAs) this offseason. Out of the nine, three are defensemen and one is a goalie. Let’s take a look at these four and determine if the Sharks should re-sign them or not.

This offseason, the San Jose Sharks will have nine UFAs that they’ll either have to re-sign or let walk. Recently, I went over their forwards that will be UFAs — this piece is for the three defensemen and goalie.

Just like the forwards, none of these players are very notable and have had a great impact while playing for the Sharks.

The most notable player on this list is back up goaltender Aaron Dell and the least notable is defenseman Brandon Davidson, who didn’t even start the season with the Sharks.

None of these four players have played at least 40 games and none have played fewer than two games for the San Jose Sharks this season. The most being 38 games by defenseman Tim Heed and the least being two games by defenseman Dalton Prout.

With that being said, let’s start this second installment of “re-sign or decline” for the Sharks’ UFAs.
