Why did the San Jose Sharks just sign 2021 draft picks Ethan Cardwell and Artem Guryev to three-year entry-level contracts?

I spoke with two NHL scouts from outside the Sharks organization who shared their insights about the OHL prospects.

Ethan Cardwell, 20, was the San Jose Sharks’ fourth-round pick in the 2021 Draft. The 5-foot-11 winger is in the midst of a breakout campaign, leading the Barrie Colts with 43 goals and second with 90 points in the regular season.

The Colts currently have a 2-1 series lead over the North Bay Battalion in the second round of the OHL playoffs.

“Cardwell has come along really well. Late-blooming due to the lost COVID year, even though he killed it in Sweden,” a scout told San Jose Hockey Now.
