The San Jose Sharks, parent club of the AHL’s San Jose Barracuda, announced Monday that they have signed goaltender Troy Grosenick to a two-year contract extension.
Grosenick, 27, was voted the winner of the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Award as the American Hockey League’s top goaltender in 2016-17, finishing the season ranked second in the league in wins (30), tied for second in save percentage (.926), third in goals-against average (2.04), and first in shutouts (10).
The fourth-year pro was selected to the 2016-17 AHL First All-Star Team and was named CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for February and CCM/AHL Player of the Week twice.
In 15 Calder Cup Playoff games, Grosenick helped lead the Barracuda to its first Western Conference Finals appearance in franchise history, posting an 8-7 record with a 2.69 GAA, a .910 save percentage and two shutouts.
In 2014-15, Grosenick became the first netminder in Sharks history to record a shutout in his NHL debut by turning aside 45 shots against the Carolina Hurricanes on Nov. 16. He would end the year by going 1-1 with a .948 save percentage and 1.53 goals-against average for San Jose.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound native of Brookfield, Wis., was originally signed by the Sharks as a free agent on April 3, 2013.
