BREAKING: Sharks Take Mason Beaupit at No. 108

With the 108th overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft, the San Jose Sharks selected goaltender Mason Beaupit of the Spokane Chiefs in the WHL. Beaupit was Spokane’s player of the year for the 2021-22 season, and a major reason why the team snuck their way into the WHL’s playoffs. Don’t let the 3.93 GAA and .893 SV% fool you! The BC native was playing behind a very young Chiefs roster and at 6-foot-5, he’s a surprisingly athletic goaltender who can move across the crease with fluidity.

The San Jose Sharks probably needed to add more goaltending into a system that doesn’t have any surefire netminders of the future yet.

Per the EliteProspects 2022 NHL Draft Guide, Beaupit’s highs are very high, but he does have areas to improve. He gives plenty to be excited over, however:

“The more you watch Beaupit, the more things start to come together, though. He’s got the size and the agility that made Mads Søgaard such an attractive option in the 2020 draft, but also boasts the tell-tale loose-footed edgework that pushes his frame right out of position when he needs to be centred most. The tool that’s going to give Beaupit a chance to thrive at the professional level is going to be his speed.”

Beaupit says he will be going to San Jose Sharks development camp.

with Grudinin still sitting there, whom i had as a possible late 1st/early 2nd, i would’ve nabbed him. the Sharks would rather roll the dice on a goalie. he’s a goalie, so what more can be said than to “hold onto your seats!”
