With the 2017 Sharks Development Camp kicking off on Monday, Sharks fans get to learn a lot of new names of the new prospects showing off their stuff at Solar4America Ice. In an effort to help remember at least some of the names, here are some of the more interesting ones, ranked.

6. Mario Ferraro
We'd make a Super Mario joke, but for some reason we think that nickname is already taken.
5. Kevin Labanc
While familiarity might normalize this name, let's not forget that Kevin's last name is a French-ified (kind of, sort of, not really) version of "the bank," which is perfect for a guy known for scoring.
4. Colby McAuley
This sounds like a WHL name. And upon double-checking the roster, we can confirm it is a WHL name.
3. Rudolfs Balcers
If there was an award for "prospect whose name most resembles one of Santa's reindeer," Rudolfs Balcers would win. That is, until Connor Blitzen comes around.
2. Jake Jackson
Jake Jackson, or Jack Jackson? The world will never know.
1. Rourke Chartier
With Barclay Goodrow graduating from development camp status, another Sharks prospect had to take up the mantle of "most likely to have Esquire after their name." That prospect is Rourke Chartier.
