Craig Rivet signed a 4-year deal to remain with the Sharks after being acquired from Montreal at the trade deadline. Rivet, 32, was scheduled to be an Unrestricted Free Agent, but he'll keep his experience in San Jose for the time being.
Rivet is a regular pick amongst pools and having a training camp and a full season with the likes of Joe Thornton, Rivet could end up a little bit better than his normal numbers, but Rivet isn't necessarily going to spend a lot more time as an offensive defensive.
Rivet is a plus-player and should be considered to go a little bit higher than he normally might.
