Sharks to buy out goaltender Martin Jones

Despite the deadline for the first buyout window closing ahead of Free Agency tomorrow, the San Jose Sharks were in no rush to buy out the remainder of goaltender Martin Jones’ contract until the last minute. The team left it to Jones’ agent to find interest in perhaps trading the goaltender — and other teams have been paying off trade partners to take on their bad contracts this off-season, if nothing else — but when nothing materialized, the Sharks committed to a change in net by placing Jones on unconditional waivers this morning.

Assuming he clears, the buyout will go through tomorrow morning and Jones will become an unrestricted free agent.
