The Sharks have signed 6-foot, 190 pound center Bracken Kearns to a one year, two-way contract, according to RDS Renaud Lejoie.
A Vancouver native, Kearns will presumably begin next year playing for the Sharks AHL affiliate in Worcester. In his seven-year pro career, Kearns has played in just five NHL games, all coming last season with the Florida Panthers. He was scoreless with 10 penalty minutes.
In 407 career AHL games, the 31-year-old Kearns has 89 goals and 131 assists.
