Sharks Camp Snapshot is a quick chance to catch up with the guys from what they've done over the summer break to where their focus is entering Training Camp ahead of the 2016-17 season.

First up, Justin Braun! The defenseman discusses his new daughter and more as he enters his seventh season with the men in teal.

What was your favorite memory from last season?
My favorite memory was getting to the Cup Final. We didn't get all the way but it was awesome getting to that point. All the goals were great, but all the hard work and finally getting to the Final and being the first team in Sharks history to get there was pretty cool.

Where did you go on vacation this summer?
I went back to Minnesota and saw family. My wife and I have a new baby so we got to show her off to everyone. My daughter Madison is good. She's crawling around and getting into everything already.

Sharks Fall 5-3 to Ducks in Rookie Showcase

by Nick Nollenberger / NHL.com

Westminster, CO - An early 3-0 deficit for the San Jose Sharks rookies proved too big of a hill to climb as the Sharks fell to the Anaheim Ducks rookies, 5-3, Monday afternoon at Ice Centre Promenade in Westminster, Colorado, in the final game of the Colorado Avalanche Rookie Showcase.

Kevin Roy opened up the scoring for Anaheim at 10:30 of the first period to give the Ducks the early advantage on a quick snap shot from the right wing. Roy then set up Max Jones in the low-slot who beat Sharks goaltender Jamie Murray at 14:13 to give the Ducks a 2-0 lead. After falling behind by a pair, Jake Marchment dropped the gloves with Darien Skeoch at 19:43 of the opening frame. The two exchanged heavy right-handed counters before falling to the ice. The chippiness continued moments later at 19:58 after Tyler Morely applied a knee-to-knee hit on Rourke Chartier, Timo Meier defended his teammate by quickly dropping the mitts with Morely.

Sharks fall 4-1 to Avalanche in Rookie Showcase

NHL.com

Westminster, CO - The San Jose Sharks rookies outshot the Colorado Avalanche rookies 36 to 23, but a strong goaltending performance by both Spencer Martin and Chase Marchand proved too much as the Avs topped the Sharks, 4-1, Saturday afternoon at Ice Centre Promenade in Westminster, CO.

A chippy first period produced several open ice hits and post-whistle skirmishes, but the Avalanche broke through for the only goal of the period. Chris Bigras beat Mantas Armalis over the left shoulder on the power play from the point at 9:34.

The San Jose Sharks went on the man advantage seven times in the game, including three times in both the second and third periods but couldn't capitalize. Just 35 seconds into the second, A.J. Greer jammed home a loose puck for Colorado to give the Avalanche a 2-0 lead.
