Sharks Sign Forward

The Sharks have signed forward Luke Kunin to a two-year deal worth $2.75 million annually.

Woah, quite the unexpected payday for Kunin.

Kunin was acquired from the Predators recently for forward John Leonard and a 2023 third-round pick. 

This past season, the twenty-four year old appeared in 82 games for the Predators, scoring 13 goals and nine assists. He also racked up 99 penalty minutes

For his NHL career, Kunin has appeared in 251 games, split between the Wild and Predators, and scored 46 goals and 47 assists for 93 total points. He's put up 207 career penalty minutes in those games. 

Kunin is a physical scoring fourth liner who can get better in the coming years, given his young age, but doesn't seem to deserve $2.75 million per year for the kind of performances he's put up in his career thus far.
