In what could make the goalie market this summer a lot different, the San Jose Sharks are closing in on an extension with Aaron Dell, according to Kevin Kurz of The Athletic. Dell is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.

Despite having just 45 NHL appearances under his belt at age-28, Dell has played well enough that he could have been considered a starting option on the open market. The free agent signing out of the University of North Dakota was leading the league in several categories at one point this season, and now has a .912 save percentage through 25 appearances.
