    Day 25 – San Jose Sharks

    San Jose has traded away a number of prospects to acquire seasoned NHL ready players. Charlie Coyle went to Minnesota as part of the Brent Burns deal along with their 2011 first round pick (Zach Phillips). This year they traded away Jamie McGinn, Mike Connolly and Michael Sgarbossa as part of the deal for Winnik and Galiardi. The prospect bank for the Sharks is running a deficit at the moment. They do have Logan Couture, as a solid graduated prospect and will hope the young forward trio of Matt Nieto, Tomas Hertl and Freddie Hamilton will be able to fit into regular roster spots down the road.

    D - Konrad Abeltshauser (GER) Halifax Mooseheads

    6’5”, 220 lbs, 20 years

    Drafted in 2010 by San Jose in the sixth round, 163 overall and is signed to a three year ELC with the Sharks. This season was a breakout year for the big lanky defenseman. Abeltshauser was a top scoring defenseman in the QMJHL with eight goals and 36 assists for 44 points in 57 games. He ranked ninth among all defensemen in the QMJHL in the 2011-12 season. In the QMJHL playoffs he added another 16 points in 15 games and was the top defensive scorer in the playoffs with 1.06 points per playoff game. Abeltshauser captained the German team in the 2012 IIHF U20 World Tournament to a 5 – 0 record and a birth at next year’s World Junior Tournament. He was named the best defenseman in the tournament. He is a big mobile defenseman with good offensive instincts. He is a strong skater and uses his size effectively and does not back away from the rough stuff and hits well. Abeltshauser will start next season in the AHL and will likely take a couple of years in the AHL before he is ready for the NHL.

    Projection: Two-way defenseman

    Potential upside: 25-45 points (Cody Franson)
    ETA: 2014-15

    D - Taylor Doherty (CAN) Worchester Sharks

    6’7”, 235 lbs, 21 years

    Drafted by San Jose in 2009 (2/57) Doherty brings big size and agility. He does not have much offensive skill. He finished his last year as captain of the Kinston Frontenacs. Doherty played a few uneventful games with Worchester after the Frontenacs were eliminated. He will be a regular in the AHL for a few years, which will give him the time to fill out his frame and develop the defensive skills he will need to crack the NHL. He carries minimal to no fantasy value, while his actual contributions to a team defensively could be immense.

    Projection: Defensive Defenseman
    Potential upside: 15-20 points (Hal Gill)
    ETA: 2016-17
