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.

As Grosenick Takes His Game to New Heights, So Do Barracuda

by Missy Zielinski / sjsharks.com

With an opportunity to advance to the Western Conference Finals of the Calder Cup Playoffs for the first time in franchise history, San Jose Barracuda netminder Troy Grosenick calmly and methodically collected a 2-0 shutout in Game 5 against the San Diego Gulls.

The series-clinching win was reminiscent of his NHL debut, a 45-save shutout in an identical 2-0 victory versus the Carolina Hurricanes on November 16, 2014, becoming the first Sharks goaltender to record a shutout in his NHL debut.

However between those two milestones, a barrage of injuries and setbacks caused Grosenick to completely rethink his game.

Carpenter's Complete Game Paying Dividends for Barracuda

by Missy Zielinski / sjsharks.com

A young roster, coupled with a small sample size of postseason experience, made it unclear how the San Jose Barracuda would respond heading into its playoff run.

But just like their regular season, where they finished atop the Western Conference standings despite the odds being stacked against them, the Barracuda continue to find ways to succeed.

The same can be said of forward Ryan Carpenter, who helped his team stave off elimination by scoring the overtime, game-winning, shorthanded goal in Round 1 versus the Stockton Heat.

Barracuda vs. Heat Round 1 Game 5

Barracuda win Game 5 to advance to Second Round

The San Jose Barracuda get an overtime win in Game 5 to advance on to the Second Round of the Calder Cup Playoffs

  • 04:53 •

SAN JOSE - The San Jose Barracuda (3-2) put 54 shots on net but needed a Ryan Carpenter overtime winner to top the Stockton Heat (2-3) Tuesday night at SAP Center in the best-of-5 series. San Jose's 3-2 series win is its first playoff advancement in team history.

After a scoreless first 20 minutes, Jamie Devane (1) broke the deadlock as he fired a shot from the low slot past Troy Grosenick after receiving a pass from Brett Kulak from below the goal line. San Jose outshot Stockton 23-to-4 in the period, but failed to capitalize on a Kayle Doetzel double-minor for high sticking and couldn't beat Jon Gillie's who came into the game after the first because of an apparent injury to starting goaltender David Rittich.

Prospect Spotlight: Mike Robinson

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

Developing goaltenders is a long-term project. Unlike some skaters who can make a sudden impact in the NHL at 18 or 19, goalies tend to take longer to mature. Look at the Barracuda's Troy Grosenick for example - all of a sudden, he's turned into the AHL's best goaltender at the age of 27. That's also the same age Sharks netminder Aaron Dell made his NHL debut this year.

Sharks prospect Mike Robinson (@mike32robinson) hopes to be the next in a long line of success stories, even if it takes a little while.

Prospect Spotlight: Gage Ausmus

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

The NCAA Frozen Four is set. While Sharks prospect Dylan Gambrell and his Denver University Pioneers will be there April 6th in the semifinals, not every Sharks prospect can be so lucky.

For defenseman Gage Ausmus (@Gausmus47), his college career at North Dakota finished in heartbreaking fashion. The perennial powerhouse program was eliminated from the tournament on Friday in a 4-3 double overtime loss to Boston University. Ausmus had taken his team to the Frozen Four in the previous 3 seasons. Despite the loss, he finished the night with a +2 rating in the game.

"I would have liked to win this one, move on and go to the Frozen Four again," Ausmus said to the Grand Forks Herald. "But I can't ask for anything more. It would be selfish. I can't ask for more than what I had here, the success we had and the memories I've created will last forever."

Prospect Spotlight: Tim Clifton

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

While the month of March is well known for its postseason basketball tournaments, it's also when the NCAA Hockey postseason begins. And whenever a team gets eliminated in March, there's a mad scramble by NHL general managers to sign the players who are finished with their college careers.

So when Quinnipiac's season came to a close, center Tim Clifton became a target for Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson. He became the newest member of the Sharks organization on March 19 when was signed to a two-year contract.

Prospect Spotlight: Jake Marchment

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

As much as call-ups and send-downs are part of minor league sports, getting loaned to a different organization is a little more rare. But the San Jose Barracuda have loaned a couple prospects out this season to an ECHL team that isn't their affiliate.

Earlier this season, the Barracuda loaned Matt Willows to the Reading Royals. In a much bigger role than he could have had in Allen, Willows has proceeded to score at roughly a point-per-game pace for the Royals.

Just last week, the Barracuda loaned another prospect out. This time it was forward Jake Marchment.
