Development Camp Plays a Significant Role in Franchise Direction

by Dan Rusanowsky @DanRusanowsky / sjsharks.com

July 1st was not only Canada Day, it was a time for armchair NHL GM's to sharpen their pencils, crank up the salary cap analytics, and start wheeling and dealing with the lives of all of the free agents who flood the market in search of new playing contracts.

But for the San Jose Sharks, it has long been a time to reflect on the prospects just selected at the NHL Entry Draft, and to eagerly anticipate the annual prospect development camp, which takes place this year July 3-7 at Solar4America Ice at San Jose.

GET TICKETS TO THE PROSPECTS SCRIMMAGE FOR JUST $10

The key to the health of any franchise is in its ability to scout, draft, and develop the game's future stars, and the Sharks have been one of the League's best when it comes to its approach to finding such talent. Just a week ago, they made 6 great selections at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft in Chicago, and they have consistently focused on hockey IQ, athletic ability and fitness.

For the very first time, San Jose selected two California natives, Jacob McGrew (Orange) and Alexander Chmelevski (Newport Beach) in one draft, which is a definitive indicator of the impact that the NHL has had in the Golden State over the last couple of decades. But more on that in a moment: let's take a look at a capsule summary of this season's Entry Draft:

Prospect Spotlight: Radim Simek & Filip Sandberg

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

Over the past few years, the Sharks European scouts have been on something of a hot streak. The Sharks organization has been able to sign young free agents from overseas who have immediately made an impact. Last year brought Marcus Sorenesen & Tim Heed. Joonas Donskoi came the year prior, and Melker Karlsson signed back in 2014.

On Tuesday, the Sharks announced the signings of two more European prospects, Radim Simek and Filip Sandberg, hoping to make an impact sooner rather than later. 

San Jose added another puck-moving offensive defenseman in Radim Simek. The 24-year-old Czech has been a consistent goal scorer, putting up 10, 9, and 11 goals the past three seasons for HC Bílí Tygři Liberec of the Czech Extraliga.
