San Jose Sharks have not made decision on Scott Gomez
Unrestricted free-agent forward Scott Gomez flew here with the Sharks for their season opener Sunday, but a decision on his future with the team might take another few days.
However, coach Todd McLellan made it clear he didn’t see Gomez’s presence as a distraction.
“Everybody right now is so focused on game one and excited about it,” McLellan said before Sunday’s 4-1 Sharks win over Calgary. “Having Scott around and having him make his decision on whether he likes our environment and whether we like him in our environment is a great opportunity for us over the next couple of days.”
Gomez, 33, seemed fine with the situation as it was and the potential chance to play for the Sharks.
“You always hear about San Jose and you never hear anything bad about the organization,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.”
