Sharks re-sign goaltender Aaron Dell

The San Jose Sharks announced on Monday that the club re-signed goaltender Aaron Dell to a one-year contract.

Dell, 26, played last year for the Sharks’ AHL-affiliate Worcester last season, his first in the AHL, and posted a 15-8-2 record with a 2.06 goals against average and a .927 save percentage. He also saw double-duty in the ECHL, going 8-1-2 for the Allen Americans.

Prior to his professional career, Dell played collegiately at the powerhouse University of North Dakota, where he still holds career marks for goals against average (1.79) and save percentage (.923).

While Dell is a hot young prospect between the pipes, pending a disaster with the NHL club, he should spend the entire season playing for the Barracuda in San Jose, the Sharks’ new minor league team. Going into the fall, Dell slots in as the fourth goaltender, behind Martin Jones, Alex Stalock and Troy Groesnick.
