SAN JOSE, Calif. Yan Gomes Jersey . -- The San Jose Sharks knew it would take some time to see the benefits of the deal two years ago to acquire James Sheppard from Minnesota. After spending most of his first year in San Jose rehabbing from a serious leg injury, Sheppard completed his two-year journey back to the NHL in January and showed flashes of why the Wild drafted him in the first round in 2006. The Sharks re-signed Sheppard to a one-year deal on Wednesday that prevents him from becoming a restricted free agent next month as they hope to build on that progress even more this upcoming season. "When you see a guy go through adversity and a challenge like this it does reveal his character," general manager Doug Wilson said. "But this is a kid who was a very highly drafted player and a very talented player. I think his best hockey is now ahead of him. ... Now I think youll see him flourish. Were not even going to put a limit on where he can get to." The Sharks also signed Andrew Desjardins to a two-year contract. Both forwards could have been restricted free agents July 5 if they had not reached deals. "Im very happy to have both these guys signed," Wilson said. "They play the way were looking for our team to play." The Sharks originally acquired Sheppard in August 2011 from the Wild for a 2013 third-round draft pick. Sheppard had been suspended the previous season by Minnesota after suffering a career-threatening leg injury from an off-season ATV accident. Sheppard played four minor league games his first season with the Sharks but got more time at Worcester during the lockout last season. He made his debut with San Jose on Jan. 22 and had one goal and three assists in 32 regular season games. He had no points in 11 playoff games but showed the Sharks enough for them to want him back next season. "It was such an intricate injury that Im not going to be 100 per cent maybe ever but Im always getting closer and closer," Sheppard said. "The more time passes the better I feel and the stronger I feel. ... I still expect to play better and I have more goals for myself that I want to accomplish." Desjardins had two goals and one assist and 61 penalty minutes in 42 games last season playing mostly on the fourth line. He won 54.2 per cent of his faceoffs and got significant time on a much-improved penalty kill unit. Desjardins, 26, was the teams rookie of the year the previous season when he had four goals and 13 assists. Desjardins has had an impressive journey since starting his professional career playing in Laredo, Texas, in the Central Hockey League. "Hes never been given anything," Wilson said. "He fought, scratched and clawed and earned respect of his teammates. Hes a tough kid. Hes really the type of guy you want on your team. He does all the things that matter, faceoffs, PK, hell block shots, certainly skate, hell battle anybody and stand up for his teammates. Hes the type of kid who has really earned his place on this team." Wilson has been busy this off-season since the Sharks were eliminated in seven games in the second round by the Los Angeles Kings. He agreed to a five-year contract extension with star centre Logan Couture to keep him off the market next summer. That deal wont be official until July 5. Wilson also signed potential unrestricted free agent forward Raffi Torres to a $6 million, three-year deal and extended the contract of head coach Todd McLellan. San Jose still has two more potential restricted free agents in forward TJ Galiardi and defenceman Jason Demers. Forwards Scott Gomez and Tim Kennedy, defenceman Scott Hannan, and backup goalies Thomas Greiss and Alex Stalock are among the potential unrestricted free agents. Cody Allen Jersey . The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. Andrew Miller Jersey . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. . -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. NASSAU, Bahamas -- If we had to choose the precise moment Thursday when Tiger Woods really started resembling the Tiger of the good ol days, it wouldnt be the opening drive that found the left rough between two bunkers. It wouldnt be the brilliant chip on the par-5 third that led to his first birdie in 466 days. It wouldnt even be his third birdie of the day, on the seventh hole, the product of a laser-beam approach shot and no-doubt-about-it putt that barely elicited a grin.No, the moment he truly started evoking memories of the guy whos won 14 major championships occurred on the next tee, the par-3 eighth, when his impact through the ball was immediately followed by one of his first audible exhortations during the round.One yard! he shouted, a command he often gave when he was hitting his best shots.The ball listened, nestling just a few feet from the hole en route to a fourth birdie and a share of the lead.Thats when some combination of Woods rustiness and the omnipotent golf gods forced him to collectively pump the brakes during his return engagement to competitive golf.You could insist he appeared very much like a different Tiger of old when he failed to get a delicate chip onto the surface from just left of the ninth green. And when he played army golf on the 11th, after a pulled tee shot left and a pushed second shot right led to a swipe at the turf with his club and an unplayable lie penalty stroke. And again when he hooked his drive on the final hole into the adjacent water hazard, then slammed the driver into the ground before carding his second double-bogey in three holes.By the time hed finished, Woods had turned a 4 under start and share of the lead into a 1-over 73 that left him in 17th place in the 18-man Hero World Challenge field.I just made some really silly mistakes, mistakes I dont normally make, Woods said, before reminding himself as much as anyone else, but I havent played in a while.This was a textbook round for someone who hadnt played in a while: Make a few nervy pars just to ease away the tension; ride the wave of adrenaline up the leaderboard; get overtaken by fatigue down the stretch.If we needed further proof, though, of WWoods return to familiarity, it came after the round, when he wouldnt acquiesce to that last observation. Roberto Perez Jersey. .He was asked a reasonable question about whether hed run out of gas before making those two doubles.I wouldnt say that, he offered. I just made some mistakes.He was asked a similar question about whether he incurred issues with stamina and again wouldnt relent.No, no, not that, he argued. I just made a couple of mistakes out there.This was classic Tiger, who for years has made a practice of debunking even the simplest opinions of his game. Consider it evidence that the new normal for him might still be pretty normal.Score and result notwithstanding, that should be a main takeaway from Thursdays round. He wasnt doubled over with back pain, nor was he chunking uncomplicated chip shots. The truth is, if you didnt know he was a 14-time major champion and didnt know he was returning from a lengthy layoff, he appeared very much like any other professional golfer playing any round of golf.How quickly I fell into the competitive mode and I felt the feel of the round, Woods said when asked what he was most pleased about. By the time I hit my tee shot on the second hole, I had already gotten into the flow of the round. Thats something that for me, when Ive taken layoffs and taken breaks, its how quickly can I find the feel of the round. Its good to be able to play [for the first time] in, what, 15, 16 months and get it on the second hole.The other takeaway is that this round should provide cautious optimism moving forward. Critical analysis aside, his return to competitive golf should be viewed through a positive prism.Woods often talks about the process. Well, hes only going to get stronger and more comfortable moving forward. This should be seen as a terrific first step in that process.Earlier this week, as a few reporters chatted up Woods on the range here at Albany Golf Club, he struck shot after shot, then finally turned to them and quipped, Im not dead yet.On Thursday, the rest of the world got to see that, too.
