The San Jose Sharks have signed North Bay Battalion forward Mitchell Russell to an entry-level contract, the club announced earlier today. Terms of the contract were not disclosed per club policy.

“Mitchell is a character player and leader on the ice with good production that helps his team win,” said Sharks interim general manager Joe Will in a release. “He has a strong pedigree as a skater who was selected in the first round of the OHL Draft.”

After the 2021 OHL season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Russell returned for the 2021-22 season to finish third in regular-season scoring on the Battalion, with 88 points (41 goals, 47 assists) in 64 games.
