Fifteen Canadians, 11 Americans and 18 players born outside North America played at least one game for the Sharks this season. Five of the team's top seven point-getters hailed from Europe and Erik Karlsson posted the highest-scoring season by a non-North American defenseman in NHL history.

Oddballs: Analyzing the Sharks position in the 2023 NHL Draft Lotteryby Dylan Finan @SanJoseSharks / sjsharks.com
First introduced in 1995 and most recently adjusted for the 2021 and 2022 NHL Drafts, the NHL's Draft Lottery system is designed to determine the order of selection in the first round of the NHL Draft for the teams not qualifying for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The system, based on the reverse-order finish of the NHL's regular season standings, has undergone numerous changes over the years, with the most recent changes being:
a) limiting the number of Lottery Draws from three to two.
b) limiting the number of positions a team can move up to 10, so only the top 11 teams are eligible to win the first overall selection.
c) limiting how often a team can win the NHL Lottery Draw - no more than two times in any five-year period.
