The San Jose Sharks signed forward Ryan Carpenter to a NHL entry-level contract.  He will report to the team’s AHL affiliate, the Worcester Sharks, for the remainder of the season.

Carpenter spent two seasons in the USHL with the Sioux City Musketeers and racked up 67 points (23g, 44a) in 117 regular season contests.  He opened his second season with the Musketeers by registering four assists in the 5-0 win against the Sioux Falls Stampede on October 2nd, 2010.  The Oviedo, Florida native also put together an eight-game assist streak, totaling 10 helpers over that span.  It was the second-longest assist streak in the USHL that season.

Following his time in Sioux City, Carpenter went on to play NCAA hockey at Bowling Green State University where he had 79 points (37g, 42a) in 100 career games at the school.  He was limited to just 15 games this season due to injury, but averaged better than a point-per-contest with 16 points (8g, 8a).  He led the Falcons in scoring as a sophomore with 33 points (18g, 15a) in 41 games and earned All-CCHA Second Team while also being named to the CCHA Scholar-Athlete Team.
