San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson announced that the club has signed unrestricted free agent goaltender and NAHL alum Andrew Shortridge to a one-year contract.
 
Shortridge will report to the San Jose Barracuda, the team's top development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL), on an Amateur try-out contract (ATO) for the remainder of the season.
