Published

on

It’s the calm before the storm at San Jose Hockey Now.

This week promises to be one of the wildest in NHL history, with the 2020 NHL Draft and the beginning of free agency smashed together with the continued uncertainty of when the next regular season will actually start.

SJHN will have complete coverage of all San Jose Sharks events during this momentous week. Subscribe here for more exclusive Sharks content!

Erik Karlsson, on what American football position he’d play: “I definitely wouldn’t be one of those enforcer guys. I think I would be a pretty good wide receiver. I got good hands, good hand-eye coordination, and I could run pretty fast. I’m not a pretty big guy, so that would be the only position I would be able to go for.”

Good morning Sheng! Do you feel Leafs signing Spezza today to 700k contract 1) create a price point for Marleau and Thornton possible contracts, 2) take the leafs off of possible landing spots for Thornton?
