With No. 217 in the 2022 NHL Draft, the San Jose Sharks took Minnesota high school forward Reese Laubach. A former San Jose Jr. Shark and a San Jose native, Laubach is currently committed to playing at Minnesota State-Mankato in 2023-24. Putting up 51 goals to match 51 assists in 57 games with the Northstar Christian Academy 18U AAA team wasn’t all that Laubach did this season. He also played with the team in the NAPHL 18U league, contributing 19 goals and 26 assists in 26 games.

The 6-foot-0, 182-pound center entered the drafted ranked 192nd on NHL Central Scouting’s final ranking of North American Skaters.

In an interview with The Rink Live, Laubach spoke about the San Jose Sharks being the team that made him fall in love with the sport and how honored he was to be committed to Minnesota State.

Now he’s a Shark!

It’s going to be a short ride for him to San Jose Sharks development, that’s for sure — Laubach was back at home in San Jose today, taking in the Draft with his family.

Nice! Be pretty cool to have a local make the roster eventually 😎

This is very cool! Years ago, the Sharks signed Matt Tennyson, who had been a junior Shark. He has stuck around for quite some time. This year, 2 draftees from the junior Sharks, including Curtis Browns son, Garrett.
