Published

on

Ryan Merkley, San Jose Sharks, San Jose Barracuda

It was an exciting day in the NHL and at San Jose Hockey Now yesterday!

In the NHL, of course, Seattle finally released their team name. At SJHN, we discussed San Jose’s newest rivals. We also spent a lot of time with ex-Toronto Maple Leafs hockey ops assistant Jack Han, who revealed how he overcame the lack of visible Asian role models in hockey, and in a subscribers-only interview, what Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic need to do to stay elite.

Later today, Swedish hockey expert Uffe Bodin will dish on San Jose prospect Jonathan Dahlen’s decision to stay in Sweden next year.
