Zubrus has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Sharks. Zubrus was released from his professional tryout contract with the Blues in early November, but the 37-year-old didn't give up and now gets a shot with Team Teal. He has familiarity with Sharks bench boss Peter DeBoer, as DeBoer served as his coach from 2011-14, when he was a member of the Devils. In all likelihood, Zubrus will be planted in a bottom-six role with the Sharks, providing much needed depth on the wings.
Zubrus has signed with the Sharks on a professional tryout, CSN Bay Area reports. The 37-year-old Zubrus hasn't decided to call it quits yet, and he'll now join the Sharks with the hopes of receiving a contract from the club. He won't be able to play in games unless a contract is signed, but he will practice with the team.
Zubrus has been released from his professional tryout contract with the Blues, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Zubrus and Martin Havlat each signed PTOs in late October, but it was the latter who ultimately earned a contract with the Blues.
The Blues have invited Zubrus to a professional tryout contract. Like Martin Havlat, who also has been invited to a PTO, Zubrus is an experienced winger who could help a Blues team that has been ravaged by injuries early this season. Zubrus spent the past eight seasons with the Devils, recording just 10 points in 74 games in 2014-15. While he's never been a prolific scorer, Zubrus would provide veteran leadership to the Blues, who currently have a 5-2-1 record and play in a super competitive Central Division.
The Devils terminated Dainius Zubrus' contract Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Frank Seravalli of TSN.ca reports.
