News: Martin signed a four-year, $19.4 million contract with the Sharks on Wednesday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Martin will provide the Sharks with a left-shot, minutes-eating defenseman with a penchant for physicality. He'll likely slot in behind Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the Sharks' second pairing. The 34-year-old contributed three goals and 20 points in 74 games last season for the Penguins.

News: The San Jose Sharks have signed Martin to a four-year contract. The team finalized the deal for a reported $19.4 million shortly after the start of Wednesday's free agency period.
Impact: San Jose missed the postseason last season for the first time since 2003 after allowing their most goals per game in nine years. The 34-year-old Martin had spent the past five seasons in Pittsburgh. He is strong in the defensive zone and is a good puck mover. He had three goals and 17 assists in 74 games last season.
