NASHVILLE — The San Jose Sharks selected David Klee and Yegor Rimashevskiy at No. 196 and 203 in the seventh round to close their 2023 NHL Draft.

The Sharks also had No. 206, but traded that to the Washington Capitals for a 2025 seventh-rounder.

Per the Elite Prospects Draft Guide, Klee has intriguing hands. “He reads the opponents’ feet and goes in the opposite direction, and then skates back into their space to prevent the reach- around. In spurts, he creates chances by feathering a backhand pass through an opponent or slipping it around.”

Klee was unranked in EP’s top-136.

The 6-foot-3 center is the son of former NHL defenseman Ken Klee and is committed to the University of North Dakota.

Rimashevskiy is a 6-foot-3 winger from Belarus.

Per the EP Guide: “We struggled to evaluate Yegor Rimashevsky this season, mostly because his low motor masked his offensive skill. He was rarely fully engaged in any of our viewings, especially in the defensive zone…To say he cheated for offence would be an understatement.”

Needless to say, he went unranked in EP’s top-136.

He did manage 13 goals and 13 assists in just 29 games for MHK Dynamo Moskva in the MHL.

Per, these were all of the San Jose Sharks picks yesterday and today:
