SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with newly acquired defenseman Brad Stuart that will prevent him from becoming a free agent.

General manager Doug Wilson said Saturday that the length and amount have been agreed to and the only holdup is submitting the contract to the league for approval.

The Sharks acquired the rights to Stuart earlier this month from Detroit for pending free agent Andrew Murray and a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2014.

Stuart had made clear that he wanted to be closer to his family, which still lives in San Jose. He had had six goals and 15 assists in 81 games last season for Detroit.
