Sheng’s Daily: Marcus Sorensen Wants to Play in Sweden?

Published

on

Per Pierre LeBrun, the San Jose Sharks are set to take the “interim” tag off of Bob Boughner.

The assumption is that Rocky Thompson and Evgeni Nabokov will be joining his staff.

But who will coach Boughner’s defense? I run through four Boughner-adjacent candidates: Roy Sommer, Jack Capuano, Bob Jones, and Mike Weber.

Boughner Is Back, but Who Will Coach Sharks Defense?

Apparently, Marcus Sorensen wants to bide his time by suiting up for Allsvenskan side Vita Hästen. That is, pending Sharks approval, according to Sportsbladet.

But hold on: Vita Hästen GM/head coach Tony Zabel told San Jose Hockey Now in an e-mail, “We don’t have any agreement with the Sharks. The story in the Swedish newspaper, I really don’t know where that’s coming from.” Zabel, however, instead of a issuing a flat denial, would not comment on the premise of the Sportsbladet story, that Sorensen wants to play on his team. So we’ll see!

Is that the same Swedish team that Dahlen is currently on?
