March 2017 – The San Jose Sharks went back to the NCAA ranks and signed undrafted free-agent Tim Clifton from Quinnipiac University. Clifton has a reputation as a two-way center that has worked his way all the way through his four years in college to round out his game and the hard work has paid off. Clifton has played in the NCAA tournament three of his four years (this year being the exception) and was the team’s leading scorer during the 2015-16 campaign that made it to the national championship game where the Bobcats fell to the University of North Dakota 5-1, with Clifton scoring the lone goal for Quinnipiac. The Sharks signed Clifton to a two-year deal. He will join the San Jose Barracuda for the stretch run and add depth for the Barracuda. Zachary DeVine


Fantasy Outlook: C-

Clifton’s stretch run stint with the Barracuda will give the first indication of what the Sharks have, but he projects at best to a bottom-six role. Zach DeVine
