The San Jose Sharks have agreed to an entry-level contract with forward Rudolfs Balcers.

Balcers, 20, spent last season with the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League, recording 40 goals and 37 assists in 66 games.

“Rudolfs is a natural goal-scorer who has proven that he can find the back of the net when his team needs it most,” said Sharks assistant general manager Joe Will in a release. “His first season in North America showed he could keep up with a more physical game, while still being one of the more dynamic snipers in the league. We’re excited to see him continue his development with our organization.”

Balcers was selected by San Jose in the fifth round of the 2015 draft.
