After taking him out for a week-long test drive, the Sharks finally made it official and signed center Scott Gomez to a one-year deal for a pro-rated portion of $700,000.
It’s a spare change investment for the Sharks, who pick up the former All-Star on the rebound from his buyout agreement with the Canadiens. If Gomez, who spent part of the lockout with the ECHL Alaska Aces, has as little to offer as he displayed over the past two seasons in Montreal, he’s easy enough to bury.
But the Sharks obviously believe the 33-year-old center still has something significant to offer.
