LAS VEGAS — The San Jose Sharks have selected Sam Dickinson at No. 11 in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.

Dickinson is a 6’3″ left-shot defenseman who played for the London Knights in the OHL last season. He amassed 70 points in 68 regular season games, and 13 points in 18 playoff games for London.

Dickinson was ranked at sixth-overall by TSN’s Bob McKenzie, but after a series of forwards including Beckett Sennecke, Tij Iginla, and Berkly Catton went top-10, Sam Dickinson was available for the Sharks at 11.

In a recent article by Sheng Peng for NBC Sports California, scouts remarked on Dickinson’s well-rounded game.

“Steady, very smart. Really good skater. Skilled, doesn’t have a lot of holes in his game. He’s as solid as a defenseman as you can get in the first round.”

Scout Talks Potential No. 11 Picks for Sharks

The scout compared Dickinson favorably to Ryan Suter.

Dickinson and Celebrini are currently slotted as the Sharks only two picks in the first round this year, however, trades can always happen, especially with the Sharks having the No. 33 and 53 picks in the second round.
