Hertl's Return A Welcomed Addition To Locker Room

by Missy Zielinski / sjsharks.com

Whether it's his versatility between center and wing, his contributions on the scoresheet or his infectious attitude and smile, forward Tomas Hertl is vastly important in the landscape of the San Jose Sharks.

"He's a tremendously good hockey player," linemate Joel Ward said. "He can play right wing, center, left wing, he can play on the power play, he can play on the penalty kill. I've never seen him at goalie, but I'm pretty sure he'd be good at that too."

His recent return has been no different - quickly making an impression on the Sharks locker room.

Prospect Spotlight: Maxim Letunov

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

Some players go their entire careers without being traded. Others get traded multiple times before even going pro. This is the case of Sharks prospect and UConn Huskies forward Maxim Letunov.

The Sharks acquired Letunov in a trade on June 20, 2016 from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for a pair of draft picks. But that wasn't the first time he was traded. Originally drafted by the Blues, he was a key piece traded to Arizona in a trade deadline rental for Zbynek Michalek.

Letunov, who just turned 21 on Monday, is likely one of the prospects in the organization with the highest potential. College Hockey News named him a 2nd team Preseason All-American heading into the year.

World's Okayest Blog- The Game of Being Goalie

by Aaron Dell @ADell32 / Sharks Goaltender

My pregame routine when I'm playing versus when I'm not playing is pretty similar. I try to keep it as close as I can so if I do have to go in I am prepared to play. Coaches usually give me a day's or two notice when I'm going to make a start so I can mentally prepare myself in practices leading up the game. I focus on my tendencies with the opposing team and try to solidify those adjustments in morning skate the day of the game.

The only main difference is that I have to eat a little differently. When I'm not playing I don't burn as many calories so I watch more of what I eat. I have to eat a little lighter on the games I'm not playing but, that's the only difference in my routine.
