Locked On Sharks

Eklund Says He Played Hurt for Most of Last Year



San Jose Sharks 2021 1st-round draft pick, William Eklund, returns to the show. We discuss the rehab on his shoulder and how he played most of the season with a shoulder injury before separating it. Next, we examine his first full season in North America with the San Jose Barracuda and the differences between the AHL and the SHL (8:30). William opens up about how he wants to make strides to become a leader in the dressing room and learning from Andrew Agozzino. We also chat about some of the San Jose Sharks’ Swedish additions in Jacob Peterson and Fabian Zetterlund, and how big of a star Erik Karlsson is in Sweden (15:00). Finally, William explains why it was important for him to go to Development Camp and what he saw from Will Smith and Quentin Musty (19:00).
