It wasn't that long ago when the Sharks had 2 prospects on their prospect page and 0 significant draft picks in the cupboards. Months of trading, drafting and acquiring draft picks have changed that.
Ian Scott who has had a tremdous season in the WHL is the backup for Team Canada and is 1-0 after his one and only start in the tournament. He has came out of nowhere this season to even be on the team.
On Team Russia the Sharks currently have Grigori Densiko and Kim Klostin representing their country. In 3 games Denisenko has 1 goal and 2 assists. Kostin has 3 assists in 3 games.
On Team Sweden the Sharks are represented by 2019 1st round draft pick Rasmus Sandin. After 10 points in 18 AHL games Sandin was allowed to join Sweden in the tournament and currently has 1 goal and 2 assists for 3 points in 4 games. Also on team Sweden is Filip Westerlund who has 1 goal and 1 assist through 4 games.
Jonas Rondbjerg is representing Team Denmark for the 4th time and after scoring 7 points in last years tournament has been a bit of a dissapointment through 4 games as he hasn't had his name on the scoresheet once.
Finnish prospect and last years draft pick Sampo Ranta was one of the last cuts for Finland and has been returned to the University of Minnesota where he 7 points in 16 games as a freshman.
With two first round picks in 2019 and 3 2nds and what looks like an early 3rd round pick the cupboards will be filled once again this summer with prospects who will soon be representing their countries and the Sharks in this great tournament.
