Welcome to the second installment of monthly prospect updates. You can find the first one, October, here. Now that the sample size is a little bigger (although still on the small side), we get a better look on how the Sharks prospects are doing.
Dan O'Regan remains at the top in NHLE, but a word of caution here. He plays on a line with Jack Eichel, a surefire top-2 pick in the 2015 Entry Draft. O'Regan has been riding Eichel's coattails all season. He's not expected to be selected for USA's WJC team. Rourke Chartier has broken out on the Kelowna Rockets. He leads the league in goals and assists. He has Nick Merkley on his line, a 2015 Draft prospect who the Sharks may look in to. They've been dynamite on the WHL's top team. The Sharks 2014 draft class, especially the CHL'ers, have been lights out to start the season. Chartier, Labanc, Sadowy, and Bergman have played awesome. Goldobin is developing well in Finland, even if his numbers aren't spectacular. He's playing with men in the Liiga and should be more focused on developing his defensive game. The AHL players on Worcester are underwhelming offensively, Tierney being the lone bright spot after being sent down in early November.
Mueller is not expected to put up points but has been a good defensive defenseman in his rookie year with San Jose. Sure, he's had some mistakes and has been scratched a few times; but most young defensemen are no different. Bergman is playing well in his first season with the London Knights in the OHL. The Sharks don't have many standout d-prospects, but Michael Brodzinski is intriguing in the NCAA. He should start putting up more points.
Grosenick is still officially on the Sharks roster but with Stalock returning, he will go back down to Worcester soon. He hasn't played in a while but had the spectacular NHL debut game in Carolina. Anderson has been in Worcester and Bergvik on Frolunda's J20 SuperElit team.
