Welcome to Day 3 of San Jose Sharks’ training camp!
It was the same groups as yesterday:
A couple interesting notes: Ryan Donato shared that he’s been playing on a line with Tomas Hertl and Evander Kane. Meanwhile, Logan Couture, Timo Meier, and Kevin Labanc have been skating together.
Between these two lines, this suggests that Bob Boughner is trying to stack his top-six, instead of spreading the wealth throughout the top-nine. Boughner also raved about Noah Gregor at center today, could he be the third-line center?
Boughner, on Gregor: "Gregor especially has really stood out to me as a guy who's bigger, stronger. He has that speed to his game."

Donato spoke today about what went wrong in Minnesota and how it feels good to have the San Jose coaching staff’s immediate confidence, while Kane discussed the possibility of being named alternate captain. Boughner talked about pushing Brent Burns and Erik Karlsson together on the power play again, and Dylan Gambrell’s development. Finally, Devan Dubnyk shared his thoughts about what happened in Minnesota and Ryan Merkley discussed his off-season growth.
