PHOENIX — Mikey Eyssimont will make his San Jose Sharks debut tonight. The left-handed winger looks set for a decent role, judging by how he lined up in practice yesterday, next to third-liners Nico Sturm, Nick Bonino, and Evgeny Svechnikov.

“He’s got an edge to him. He’s got some skill and some speed. That’s something that we’re all looking for,” Sharks head coach David Quinn said this morning of the Jan. 6 waiver claim. “I think he’s got an opportunity here to kind of create a role for himself and I’m excited about putting him in the line-up.”

The 26-year-old had just one goal and four assists in 19 NHL games this season, but did set career highs with 18 goals and 24 assists in 58 games with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose last year.

He should bring physicality and shot volume to San Jose’s bottom-six.
