Chicks dig the longball, hockey fans dig goals.

That might explain Brad Lambert or Jonathan Lekkerimaki or Frank Nazar emerging as the type of prospect that San Jose Sharks fans want the team to select with the No. 11 pick of the 2022 NHL Draft.

In fact, I spoke with two NHL scouts who thought that Lekkerimaki or Nazar would be the Sharks’ pick on Jul. 7.

The scouts also shared extensive scouting reports about potential scoring stars Lambert, Lekkerimaki, Nazar, Matthew Savoie, and Joakim Kemell with San Jose Hockey Now.

But there appears to be another type of forward that the San Jose Sharks might be targeting with their first-round pick.

Conor Geekie, Marco Kasper, and Danila Yurov fit the profile of future two-way, all-situations forwards, the kind who can do a little bit of everything that you need to win games.

In fact, one of the scouts said that Kasper falling to the San Jose Sharks would be a “dream scenario.”

So why is Kasper shooting up the Draft rankings? How worried should we be about Geekie’s skating? Why is Yurov such a wild card?
