The season is past the halfway point for most leagues and this is the time where players start to show their true colors. Who will fade as their season treads on and who will step up when their team needs them most?
As you can see, most of the 2014 draft class is having extraordinary seasons. Labanc and Chartier remain close to the top just behind Dan O'Regan (who should have a '*' by his numbers due to Jack Eichel). Sharks recent signee Nikita Jevpalovs is also having a great season in the Q, albeit as an overager. Tomas Hertl graduated last prospect rankings but is starting to raise his numbers on the Sharks. Tierney is still almost a PPG player in the AHL and he has been a key component in the team's resurgence. Goldobin was injured/scratched a few games on HIFK but he is back playing a second line role. The Sharks prospects in the NHL include Barclay Goodrow who's playing on the third line with Hertl and Sheppard, and Tye McGinn who is lucky to even be in the lineup right now. January has been a good month for many forward prospects especially the ones in the CHL.
Matt Tennyson has shot up the charts with his recent production in the NHL. He's doing an adequate job on the third pairing (second now with Braun hurt). Bergman's offensive numbers have slightly dropped but his team in London has been good. Mueller had a brief stint in Worcester where he scored a goal but hasn't played an NHL game in almost two months. His season has been disappointing (or rather the team's usage of him) and it would have probably been better to send him back to Everett for the season. The Sharks still lack a true offensive defenseman in the system and will likely address that come June.
Goaltending depth is the biggest weakness in the organization and it's not hard to see why. Grosenick has not been feeling well lately so Anderson is being given more starts in Worcester. It's hard to even track down where Bergvik is playing as of late because he's been loaned two times from his J20 team. For a goalie that was supposed to assume a backup role for Frolunda in the SHL this season, Bergvik has disappointed.
