Sharks bring back Daddy (Jason Demers) for 2 yrs/ $3.4 million
For a D guy with 30+ points, a +14 plus/minus rating and only 30 minutes in the box over a 75 game season, 2 yrs/$3.4 million is a great contract for Demers who is so clearly worth more to the organization than just the numbers he’s putting up on the ice. Demers is part of the core crew of young guys in San Jose and a guy so clearly liked by teammates and fans alike. “Daddy” is very visible in the community, most recently accompanying Sam Tageson to his own signing down on Stevens Creek at a card shop. Not only that but he showed the same comraderie to the guy when he was on the team for his Make-a-wish:
Classy guy, funny guy, good, durable teammate. Glad to have you back on board.
P.S. “Provincial Quebec Champion”
