Sharks to ink Toffoli with four-year, $24 million contract, add Wennberg


The San Jose Sharks will sign forward Tyler Toffoli to a four-year, $24 million deal, according to TSN Hockey Insider Chris Johnston. 

The deal has an average annual value of $6 million. 

Toffoli, 32, finished last season with the Winnipeg Jets after he was acquired from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for two draft picks at the trade deadline.

The 6-foot forward had 33 goals and 55 points in 79 games split between the Jets and Devils last season. He added two goals in the Jets’ five-game loss to the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the playoffs.

He is coming off a four-year, $17 million deal he signed with the Montreal Canadiens in October of 2020.

Drafted 47th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in 2010, Toffoli has 260 goals and 521 points in 812 career games split between the Kings, Vancouver Canucks, Canadiens, Calgary Flames, Devils and Jets.

Toffoli helped the Kings win their second Stanley Cup in three years in 2014 after recording seven goals and 14 points in 26 playoff games.

The Scarborough, Ont., native has represented Canada twice at the 2015 and 2023 World Championships, recording five goals and 11 points in 20 appearances to win two gold medals.

The Sharks have also signed forward Alex Wennberg to two-year, $10 million contract. 

Wennberg, 29, finished last season with the New York Rangers after he was dealt from the Seattle Kraken for a draft pick prior to the trade deadline.

The 6-foot-2 centre recorded 10 goals and 30 points in 79 games split between the Kraken and Rangers. He added a goal and two points in 16 playoff games before the Rangers were eliminated in the Eastern Conference Final by the Florida Panthers.

Wennberg is coming off a three-year, $13.5 million contract he signed with the Kraken in July of 2021.

Drafted 14th overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2013, Wennberg has 91 goals and 335 points in 712 career games split between the Blue Jackets, Florida Panthers, Kraken, and Rangers.

The Stockholm, Sweden, native represented his country twice at the World Championship in 2016 and 2019, registering four goals and 18 points in 14 appearances.
