Sharks Player Ends Holdout

Evgeny Nabokov has received an enormous pay raise today as he ended his holdout, signing with the San Jose Sharks for 2 years 7 million dollars [according to SportingNews Radio]. Last season, the Kazakhstan native earned $575,000 US last season.

Some quick notes about Nabokov is that he is the 7th goaltender and first European-born goaltender in NHL history to score an actual goal during a regular season NHL game. He ranked 3rd last year in the NHL with 37 wins. He won the Vezina trophy as the leagues top goaltender and in 2000-2001 was selected as the Rookie of the Year.
