SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The San Jose Sharks signed pending free agent forward Evander Kane to a seven-year contract Thursday that keeps the high-scoring winger off the open market and part of the Sharks long-term future.

Kane, who turns 27 in August, was acquired from Buffalo at the trade deadline in February and became a key part of San Jose's team down the stretch and in the playoffs.

"At only 26 years old, Evander has established himself as one of hockey's true power forwards and an impact player," general manager Doug Wilson said. "We think his abilities mesh perfectly with our group of skilled, young players and veteran leaders. It's extremely heartening to have Evander join a trend of elite players who have chosen to remain in San Jose. It speaks volumes as to how players view this organization and further illustrates the continued commitment to our fans by our owner Hasso Plattner."
