Tomas Hertl joins the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast!
But before we get to Hertl Power (1:15:00), Keegan and Sheng preview the San Jose Sharks’ Rookie Faceoff roster (1:48) and John McCarthy’s first media availability since Martin Kaut’s accusations.
In honor of the Rookie Faceoff, we formed two all-time San Jose Sharks prospects teams (7:10), the Most Disappointing Sharks Prospects and the Most Surprising, complete with recollections from a lot of fun archival sources.
Pat Fallon (9:47), Teemu Rihijarvi (13:10), Nikolay Goldobin (17:50), Jeff Jillson (22:04), Mirco Mueller (27:45), and Ben Gaudreau (35:15) “headline” one team.
We also touch on some dishonorable mentions (39:26).
Joe Pavelski (46:16), Ryane Clowe (49:10), Kevin Labanc (51:18), Justin Braun (57:17), Jason Demers (59:15), and Evgeni Nabokov (1:02:37) highlight a team of the positive.
And of course, there are honorable mentions (1:05:05)!
