Observations

August 2018 – The Sharks signed True to a three-year entry-level deal in July of 2018. The undrafted forward spent the past season playing for the San Jose Barracuda on a one-year AHL deal. True put up 28 points in 68 games with the Barracuda and he’ll look to build off that this season. He’s a long shot to make the NHL club, but at 6-5 his size won’t be what holds him back. True isn’t fantasy relevant yet, but keep an eye on his progress this year if he shows improvement in his second pro season he could get an NHL look in his third. Chris Legg

 

July 2017 – True has been on the radar for a few years. He spent the past three seasons with the WHL powerhouse Seattle Thunderbirds and played internationally for Team Denmark. He captained last year’s WJC Denmark squad and posted a goal and two assists in five games along with a career-high 40 points for the T-Birds. During the WHL playoffs, True really came alive with 12 goals and 10 assists in 20 games as Seattle won the WHL championship.

True is a big body with better hands than feet and a good shot with accuracy. He plays a responsible overall game but lateral movement and first steps are areas requiring work, although once he gets going he has decent speed. His hands and size make him an interesting prospect darkhorse and perhaps some off-seasons with his cousin Nikolaj Ehlers can help spark some magic as well. Zachary DeVine
