With their only 5th round pick the Sharks drafted Rourke Chartier, a skilled but undersized center. He is a hard worker and good skater but consistency is an issue.
Chartier is a skilled forward with a high work ethic. He shows impressive quickness and excellent overall skating ability. He makes opposing players miss and has the hands to carry the puck into the opposition zone. He possesses great vision and is smart with/without the puck. Only issue is lack of size and game to game consistency.
Draft Site (Bill Placzek)
Undersized centre with very good speed, quickness and feel for the soft areas to position himself in. At this point, he is big enough or physically strong enough to overcome the road blocks that opponents became. He is unable to maintain ground or possession on many an occasion. Understand his defensive responsibilities and knows how to attack. He needs to bigger all around to undertake them adequately.
