San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has recalled center Tom Cavanagh from the Worcester Sharks, San Jose’s development affiliate in the American Hockey League.
Cavanagh is currently third on Worcester in scoring with 50 points (17 goals, 33 assists) in 72 games. The rookie is expected to make his NHL debut Thursday night against the Kings and has been assigned number 47.
He spent four collegiate seasons with Harvard University from 2001-2005.
The six-foot, 200-pound forward native of Warwick, Rhode Island, was originally drafted by San Jose in the sixth round (182nd overall) in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
