It’s been a banner summer for the Hamburg, New York native, starting with the San Jose Sharks selecting the skilled 6-foot-2 winger in the first round in late June.
Musty has opened eyes at every turn ever since.
At Sharks’ development camp, a week after the Draft, Musty was the star of the prospects scrimmage, scoring three goals.
“Just his compete, his pace. Which I think he does pretty naturally, that was what impressed me in development camp,” San Jose Sharks head coach David Quinn said. “The skill-set speaks for itself, but I thought he did things fast. There was a pace to his game that you usually don’t see for kids his age, that size.”
Then, Musty showed well in the World Junior Summer Showcase, scoring the game-winning goal for Team USA in the final contest of the competition against Sweden.
Entering the 2023-24 campaign, the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast tabbed Musty as the organization’s fifth-best prospect.
He started the new season right where he left off, looking very comfortable as an 18-year-old during September’s Rookie Faceoff.
Then, on Tuesday, Musty suited up for his first-ever NHL game, albeit an exhibition tilt.
Quinn liked what he saw: “Very, very impressed. I thought he had a lot of poise. He played at a good pace.”
All this sets Musty up for a big season with the Sudbury Wolves.
Besides looking to add to his production from last year, 26 goals and 52 assist in just 53 games, Musty thinks the Wolves can go a long way.
“It’ll be fun to play with them, and hopefully, go for a championship,” Musty said. “We got a pretty loaded team.”
