Sometimes, things are almost fated to happen.
Last weekend, the San Jose Sharks participated in the 2018 NHL Draft, drafting five players to help restock the prospect pipeline. And while none of them were born or grew up in the Bay Area, that didn't mean there's no connection between the Sharks and these draft picks.
Heck, one of them was already a Sharks fan.
Fourth round pick Jasper Weatherby already knows the Tank's favorite chant, tweeting out #BeatLA ahead of one of the playoff games.
Even more impressive: Weatherby attended one of the Stanley Cup Final games in San Jose, bringing along a pretty memorable sign while rooting for the home team against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
But Weatherby isn't the only one with a teal-colored background. It's come full circle for first round pick Ryan Merkley, who was on the Sharks in one of his youth teams.
