The NHL announced the order of the 2021 NHL Draft this week. The Sharks currently own eight selections heading into the draft with their first pick coming at No. 7 overall.

The draft takes place on Friday, July 23 starting at 5 p.m. PT (Round 1; ESPN2) and Saturday, July 24 starting at 8 a.m. PT (Round 2-7; NHL Network) and once again will be conducted virtually. 

Below is a complete list of San Jose's draft picks:

Round 1 - No. 7
Round 2 - None 
Round 3 - No. 71
Round 4 - No. 103 & No. 121 (acquired from Toronto Maple Leafs)
Round 5 - No. 135 & No. 156 (acquired from Colorado Avalanche)
Round 6 - No. 167
Round 7 - No. 199

The Sharks acquired its 121st overall pick from Toronto via a three-way trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Maple Leafs, which also sent Stefan Noesen to Toronto.

Additionally, when the Sharks traded Devan Dubnyk to Colorado, they received a fifth-round pick from the Avalanche in exchange for the goaltender.

San Jose's second-round selection belongs to the Ottawa Senators, as the final piece of the Erik Karlsson trade, while two third-round picks - No. 87 and No. 90 - belong to the Montreal Canadiens (traded for fourth-round pick in 2020) and the Minnesota Wild (included as part of Ryan Donato trade, which was originally acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins for Patrick Marleau), respectively.
