The San Jose Sharks will open training camp this Thursday, on Sept. 21.

At the moment, 64 players are coming, 37 forwards, 20 defensemen, and seven goaltenders.

Mackenzie Blackwood, Kyle Burroughs, Anthony Duclair, Mikael Granlund, Mike Hoffman, Jan Rutta, Givani Smith, and Filip Zadina are among the prominent newcomers.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic is entering his 18th season with the San Jose Sharks, Logan Couture his 15th, and Tomas Hertl his 11th. They’re the longest-tenured Sharks.

William Eklund, Shakir Mukhamadullin, Quentin Musty, Henry Thrun, Danil Gushchin, and Thomas Bordeleau are among the top San Jose Sharks prospects who will be vying for NHL jobs.

The Sharks are hoping that this blend of young and old can get them out of the cellar. They had the fourth-worst record in the league last season, their fourth-straight year out of the playoffs.

In addition, Tanner Kaspick and Justin Bailey are two previously unannounced veterans who will be hoping to hook on with the Sharks.

Kaspick, 25, was a 2016 St. Louis Blues’ fourth-round pick. The forward has 20 goals and 24 assists in 213 AHL appearances. He has yet to make his NHL debut. It appears he has signed an AHL contract and will be ticketed for the San Jose Barracuda if he doesn’t make the Sharks.

Justin Bailey, 28, was a 2013 Buffalo Sabres’ second-round pick. The winger has five goals and four assists in 82 NHL games over parts of seven seasons with the Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers, and Vancouver Canucks. He’s also scored 130 goals in 354 AHL contests.

Rookie Faceoff invites Ben Allison, Felix Gagnon, and Joseph Henneberry will also be attending camp.

Camp begins at 9 AM on Sept. 21 and will start with three skater groups, which will eventually be whittled down to one opening night roster.

The San Jose Sharks’ first pre-season game is on Sept. 24 against the Vegas Golden Knights. They open the season on Oct. 12 against the Golden Knights at SAP Center.

I noticed on some New Jersey forums they are talking about Santeria hataaka (21 years old, included in Meier trade) and people are wondering why we gave them that guy. I’m gonna start keeping track of the prospects Mike Grier has given away, I remember thinking why did we include kniazev and hataaka in those deals, but I assumed (again, very very wrongly) that grier and them knew what they were doing and he sucked. He’s now on the first line defense for nj during the tournaments, and apparently they like him. That’s okay though we have lots of offensive… Read more »


Hataka has legit potential to be a 5-6 d-man, not as a high potential or likelyhood of hitting as several other Sharks d-prospects. I would imagine Hataka was involved because he was unlikely to make it on the Sharks with so many prospects so far ahead of him. If we kepped him ge would have been below Mukahmadullin, Thrun, Havelid, Oktohiuk, Laraque,, Guraev, Furlong. After the most recent draft, he would be even lower. Hataka also will be ready to play earlier than would line up with the sharks competition cycle. If Hataka does become a quality bottom 6 option… Read more »
