Sharks re-up with emerging Clowe

Ryane Clowe and the San Jose Sharks have agreed to a four-year contract worth north of $3.5 million a season, a source told ESPN.com Thursday night.

The 26-year-old power winger from Newfoundland was a restricted free agent coming off a career-high 22 goals and 52 points in 71 games last season.

Clowe was drafted in the sixth round (175th overall) in 2001 by San Jose.
