The San Jose Sharks have signed 2015 first-round draft pick Timo Meier to an entry-level deal.
The standard three-year agreement between the Sharks and their ninth overall pick was announced by the club on Wednesday.
“Timo is a dynamic forward who has outstanding finishing skills,” general manager Doug Wilson said via a team press release. “His big, pro frame allows him to be successful in all three zones, and his high hockey IQ has already become evident at our Prospects Development Camp. We look forward to watching his continued development.”
Meier, 18, finished the 2014-15 season with 44 goals and 90 points in 61 games — including a 27-game point streak from late November to late February — with the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads
He also received the 2015 Michael Bossy Trophy, which is awarded to the player considered to be the league’s best professional prospect.
