San Jose Sharks

Scouts Evaluate Sharks Goaltending Prospects (+)

The future of the San Jose Sharks is taking shape.

But what about the goaltending?

Up front, William Eklund, Thomas Bordeleau, Filip Bystedt, and quite possibly, one of Connor Bedard, Adam Fantilli, Matvei Michkov, or Leo Carlsson may form the core of a future Cup-caliber top-six.

On the blueline, Shakir Mukhamadullin, Mattias Havelid, and Henry Thrun look like the beginning of potential solid future top-four, hopefully the depth making up for the lack of a true kingpin on the backend.

Between the pipes?

Pending UFA James Reimer is 35. Kaapo Kahkonen, 26, is signed for another season with the San Jose Sharks, but has had a very up-and-down year.

So what about prospects Ben Gaudreau, Mason Beaupit, Eetu Makiniemi, Magnus Chrona, or Strauss Mann? I spoke with multiple NHL sources to get a sense of what the San Jose Sharks have got in the system.
