The 2022 NHL Draft order has been finalized and all 225 picks have been assigned. Unless there are more trades where picks for this year move hands, which there likely will be, fans and organizations now know who is picking when.
So with just one week until the draft in Montreal, the San Jose Sharks possess nine picks (11, 76, 108, 138, 140, 172, 195, 204, 217). That’s a first-rounder, a third, a fourth, two fifth-rounders, a sixth, and three seventh-rounders.
Sharks director of scouting Doug Wilson Jr. talked to Nick Nollenberger about who San Jose might pick at No. 11 recently:
