Langfeld swims to the Sharks

The San Jose Sharks, parent club of the AHL’s Cleveland Barons, announced today that the club has signed Group III unrestricted free agent right wing Josh Langfeld to a one-year deal.

Langfeld, originally a third-round selection (66th overall) by the Ottawa Senators in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, finished sixth in scoring for the Binghamton Senators in 2004-05, posting 57 points (32 goals [T-3rd on the team] and 25 assists) along with 75 penalty minutes in 74 games.

In four AHL seasons with Binghamton and Grand Rapids, Langfeld recorded 80 goals and 76 assists for 156 points in 231 contests. He also has 51 NHL games to his credit (all with Ottawa), posting seven goals and 11 assists.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound native of Fridley, Minn., played four seasons (1997-2001) at the University of Michigan, and scored the overtime goal to defeat Boston College for the 1998 NCAA Championship.
