Davison re-signs

According to TSN, Sharks defenseman and restricted free agent Rob Davison, who had previously filed for arbitration, was signed by the Sharks to a one-year contract. Terms of the deal were unspecified.

With Scott Hannan bolting to Colorado via free agency, the Sharks' sixth defensive spot is largely up for grabs, with Davison likely being regarded as the favorite to step into the role. He played in just 22 games this season, recording a measly two assists, but was far more effective in the 2005-06 campaign when, in addition to playing in a career-high 69 games, he was fourth on the team in blocked shots and fifth in hits.

In 161 career games, the 27-year-old has 14 points. He is also considered a fan favorite by many Sharks supporters who admire his dedication, hard work and pugilism.
