ASU hockey defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk signs with San Jose Sharks

Arizona State hockey defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk has signed with the San Jose Sharks.

Pasichnuk is ASU's first player to sign with an NHL team as a free agent and second ever to sign an NHL contract following goalie Joey Daccord, who was a 2015 draft pick by the Ottawa Senators.

Pasichnuk finished his four-year ASU career with 107 points, the most in school varsity history. As a senior, he scored 37 points, third most nationally among defensemen, in 36 games with 12 multi-goal games including a hat trick.

"For four years, Brinson was our heartbeat," ASU coach Greg Powers said the two-year captain.
