Pasichnuk Becomes Program's First NHL Free Agent Signee

TEMPE, Ariz. – Sun Devil Hockey senior defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk has become the second player in program history to agree to terms on an NHL contract, as he and the San Jose Sharks reached an agreement on a three-year, entry-level deal Monday.
