Chris Peters on Sharks Prospects Who Excite Him, Don’t Excite Him



Chris Peters joins the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast!

He talks San Jose Sharks prospects, and how they performed at World Junior Championships…he was excited by some, not excited by some others (1:14:31)

But before that, after a 12-game losing streak, we finally have a Sharks win to talk about! (1:32)

Throughout the win against Montreal and a following three-assist night against Ottawa, Ferraro has emerged as a leader, something Sheng has been saying for a few months now. (6:45)

Sheng and Keegan dive into the Chmelevski trade rumors that were shared by Kevin Weekes. What’s a likely return for him? Can he be successful at the NHL level? (15:42)

We discuss Sharks’ former first-round pick Ozzy Wiesblatt and his meniscus surgery, and highlight some of his struggles in the AHL this year. (32:00)

Keegan is excited as Danil Gushchin is an AHL All-Star! (37:20)

Finally before the Chris Peters interview, Sheng has some thoughts on the coaching job of David Quinn (41:30). What was expected of him this year, and is he the right coach for next year and beyond in this rebuild?

Now, to the Chris Peters interview! (1:14:31) NHL Draft and Prospects analyst and Senior Content Creator, from FloHockey,

We ask Chris about his thoughts on Team USA’s gold medal. (1:16:20)

We get the deep dive on Will Smith, and how he turned his game around throughout the tournament. (1:17:20)

Should the San Jose Sharks sign Will Smith at the end of this year? (1:23:15)

How did Chris think Eric Pohlkamp performed, and what led to him being the odd man out in the medal rounds? (1:26:45)

Now onto Team Sweden and Jonathan Lekkerimäki’s MVP. Sheng has some questions about how the silver medalist won it over a few of the other candidates. (1:29:45)

Chris remarks on the less than impressive performance of Filip Bystedt. (1:32:00), and the so-so performance of Mattias Hävelid (1:34:30).

Chris answers Sheng’s question of where would Filip Bystedt be ranked among the Swedish forwards from the 2022 Draft? (1:36:30)

Moving onto Team Canada, Chris answers the question of Jake Furlong’s pro potential after he surprised many and made Team Canada. (1:39:17)

Finally, Team Finland’s only San Jose Sharks representative, Kasper Halttunen. What needs to improve to transform Halttunen from a junior shooter to an NHL regular? (1:41:50)

Chris shares a few remarks on prospects that weren’t at the WJC including Quentin Musty (1:47:30), Cam Lund (1:48:05), Magnus Chrona (1:48:30), and Daniil Gushchin (1:48:55).

Finally, we ask the question, in Chris’s opinion, is Macklin Celebrini the unanimous No. 1 overall for the 2024 Draft? (1:50:00)
