San Jose, Calif. (AP) - San Jose Shark is securing a seven-year contract with Everard Kane, who will head the high scores of the free agent market.

A person familiar with the talks says that on Wednesday the contract is expected to end. The person spoke with The

Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity, since the agreement was not completed. Sportsnet

said for the first time that the two sides were close to an agreement.

At the age of 27 in August, Ken was acquired from Buffalo on business schedules. Under the terms of that exchange,

Abrs would have to choose for the first time in 2019, instead of the second round, when Ken signed with San Jose.

The selection is protected by lottery, so it can be taken in 2020.

Ken's position was one of the biggest questions for the shark in this office, which was eliminated from the

tiebreaker in six games in the second round against the last champion of the Western Conference Vegas.

Star Joe Thornton is the team's other potential free agent, but has said he is ready to re-agree for a year.

Ken. had occasional snow problems and teammates during his start with Winnipeg and Buffalo, but along with an

experienced team of sharks, he had the opportunity to join his postcassen for the first time in his career.

After the end of the season, teammate Logan Couture said, "He's in very good shape." "You do not hear what you say about him, in recent months, he's a great teammate, he cares and he wants to win." It was fun to play. "

Ken had an immediate impact on San Jose, with captain Joe Powellski making a direct pass on the top line and

helped reduce the loss of Thornton, who fell from a knee injury at the end of the season in January. Ken used his

speed and physical drama to score nine goals and five assists in 17 games and threw an eight-game winning streak that sent San Jose to the playoffs.

Ken. scored three goals in the first round and assisted during the sweep against Anaheim. But he was struggling a bit

against the golden nights, which was slow with his knee and shoulder injuries, which came out of the end of the regular season.

He. scored one goal in five games against Vegas and 5 was zero. He used to remember Game 2 of that series when he

was suspended by the cross-control of Pierre-Edouard Belmayer.

Ken finished his second highest grossing season with 29 rounds and 25 assists in the previous season, which went to

Jets in the 30-round campaign and 27 assists. After entering the NHL as the fourth overall selection of Atlanta in

2009, Ken has 186 goals and 168 assists in 574 career games.
