SAN JOSE—Another forward is back in teal! Twenty-three year-old forward Barclay Goodrow closed a two-year extension with the Sharks on Monday, August 7.
The Sharks signed Goodrow, who hails from Toronto (anyone else wonder if he cheered for the Maple Leafs growing up?), on March 16, 2014 as a free agent. He was the Sharks’ only remaining restricted free agent who hadn’t closed a 2017-2018 deal with the team prior to Monday. According to reports, his contract is worth $1.3 million.
This past season, the 6 foot and 2 inch tall, 215-pound right winger played in 61 games with the Barracuda. He had 45 points (for which he ranked fourth on the team), which consisted of a team-leading 25 goals along with 20 assists. He finished fourth on the team with a plus-16 rating and led the team in shorthanded goals as he scored four out of the Barracuda’s 14 total. The Barracuda has 15 matches in the playoffs this season (before being eliminated by the Grand Rapids Griffins in the third round), all of which Goodrow played in. He tallied an additional 10 points (five goals and five assists), 45 shots on goal (SOG), and a plus-3 rating. He made three appearances with the Sharks last season, where he had one assist and three SOG.
Between the Barracuda and the Worchester Sharks (for whom he played seven games in 2014-2015), Goodrow has 125 AHL games under his belt along with 90 points (47 goals and 43 assists), 109 penalty minutes, and a plus-25 rating. He has made 77 NHL appearances and holds 16 points (four goals and 12 assists), two shorthanded points, two game-winning goals, and an even rating.
Before joining the Sharks organization, Goodrow played for the Villanova Knights (OJHL), Brampton Battalion (OHL), and the North Bay Battalion (OHL).
