I posted on the main boards too to see if anyone has seen him play in the USHL

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1263335
I'm not sure how he was before coming to North America but he signed w/ the Indiana Ice when he was 19, long after his draft year.

As a 19 and 20 year old he was good for the Ice but he was playing alongside some very good players. As I understand it, scouts aren't sure he'll be able to produce on his own.

He's not small, he's now listed at 6' 192lbs. According to a couple of junior scouts I asked, he's looks to have some pretty good skill - a pure goal scorer with a great shot, he has good vision, hockey IQ and puckhandling abilities.

It's not often a player gets a pro contract straight out of the USHL.

Thanks for the information!

Definitely sounds like an interesting prospect, hopefully he continues to develop in Worcester, sharks haven't had a pure goal scorer in a long time..

I agree.

The W Sharks are a good team on paper this season i believe. It's possible that Tarasov may get assigned to the Bulls depending on his training camp. He just may not be ready for that jump yet. Also depends on how the rest of their roster fills out.

The Worcester Sharks definitely went out and got themselves some skilled players recently. Both Gourde and Tarasov have puck skills that, if they can translate to the pros, the org. hasn't had for a while.

I'm excited for W Sharks fans this season, looking forward to their improved performance as a team as well as the development of some decent prospects.

As we don't appear to be having NHL hockey soon, i hope that the many W Sharks fans here in HF can continue to indulge us with updates on all fronts.

****, just realized this means I have to change his graphic. Didn't realize they dropped the St Mike's Majors moniker.

Not a fan of the Steelheads jerseys either. They're just TML ripoffs. I miss the St Mike's double blue.

NU preview of forwards (pt 1) including Cody Ferriero, "returning veteran leadership"

Quote:
Junior Cody Ferriero will try and bounce back from a strong first half to his sophomore campaign that was mired by injury down the stretch. The Essex, Mass., native nearly averaged a point per game in those he participated in, scoring 15 points (9-6-15) in 17 outings. Ferriero potted a pair of game winners and notched Northeastern's first hat trick (at Vermont, Jan. 27, 2012) since Ryan Ginand on Jan. 24, 2009. Along with all of those figures, the San Jose Sharks draft pick lead Northeastern in plus/minus with a +11 rating and shot percentage (.220). Because he missed almost half of last year, a full-strength Ferriero could mean trouble for Northeastern opponents this season.

Anybody know what's happening with Hertl? He's got 3 points and a -2 in 8 games but his team has only won 3 of them. Top scorers on the team are Sobotka and Cervenka with 8 points in 5 and 6 games respectively.

It's still pretty early but just wondering how things are going.

I think he's been playing pretty good (at least the first games of the season that I saw), he's getting the scoring chances but he lacks a bit of luck. Plus he doesn't have the best players in his line (Krenzelok and Zejdl).

Too small a sample size. Plus, he's been pushed down the depth chart.

(Also, if I know where this is leading, Teräväinen only has 1 assist in 7 games.)

That's good to hear. As long as he's playing well then no huge reason to worry.

The Hockey News released their Major Junior preview issue a couple days ago. Of note for the Sharks:

London (Tierney) is projected to finish 2nd (out of 20) in the OHL behind only Kitchener.

Sudbury (Sefton) is projected to finish 7th

Mississauga (DeMelo) is projected for 16th

Sarnia (Anderson) is pegged for 17th.


Over in the Q, Halifax (Abeltshauser) is projected for 2nd (out of 18) behind only Quebec.

While Acadie-Bathurst is set for 7th (and the two-sentence preview even makes note to "watch out for San Jose draft pick Christophe Lalancette")

Back from the BU game and it was a blowout! BU annihilated Toronto 5-0. Nieto opened up the scoring with an incredibly beautiful wrist shot, it was an amazing snipe, hitting it perfectly top shelf from the top of the slot. The first period was the Nieto show, he dominated the play on a top line with Gill and Cisse. Nieto was on the ice for the second goal, it was his great stick work that kept the puck in the zone, he didn't get an assist but the goal was all thanks to his effort. O'Regan's college career started with him getting thrown out of a faceoff for cheating, kid will fit right in with the Sharks if he majorly bulks up. He's fast, even faster than Nieto, and highly skilled playing in the top 6 the entire game but O'Regan really needs to bulk up and hopefully grow a few inches as he was pushed around a lot out there. After it became clear that this was going to be a slaughter BU started experimenting with the lines in a way that Sharks fans will be excited about. Nieto started the 2nd and continued the rest of the game playing with O'Regan, they were by far the two fastest and most skilled players on ice and the combo led to frequent breakaways and scoring chances. Nieto also looks like he added a ton of muscle and was used to help defend the smaller but equally fast and creative O'Regan. The combo also was used heavily on the PK as both were defensively responsible with O'Regan a little unsure in his first college game though he looked better when taking his cues from Nieto, hopefully they stick together as their speed and creativity made for an interesting duo to watch. The game quickly devolved into a penalty parade, Toronto got a few game misconducts and played really dirty in general especially after BU started to pile it on offensively. Cisse is a beast, much much improved over last year in his skating and tough as nails with his big 6'3'' frame, if he keeps improving the Jets might have gotten a steal of a power forward in the 5th round. On defense Noonan looked like Suter out there, Preds should be happy with him, Alexx Privitera looked impressive as well with a great two way game notching 3 assists. Sharks should keep an eye on Privitera as he wasn't drafted.

not surprising on the game result. CIS hockey is basically the refuge of guys who have absolutely zero professional aspirations after finishing their CHL career, and walk-ons who never had a CHL career to begin with.

I worry that KA's offense is almost entirely a product of Nathan Mackinnon and Jonathan Drouin...

It's not. Obviously playing w/ two guys that are that highly skilled helps his production but he produces without them as well.

He's been really, really good so far this season skating as their #1 d-man in all situations.

DeMelo has had a great start to the season as well.

On another note, Merrill was injured today, which sucks for UMI but Moffie should see big minutes again this season.
