Observations

May 2020 – In late March, the Sharks agreed to terms with 22-year-old defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk, captain of the NCAA Arizona Sun Devils. It’s been a long road to the big leagues for the Canadian blueliner, who was passed over in the 2016 NHL draft, despite being ranked 115th by the NHL’s Central Scouting Bureau. Never the less, Pasichnuk remained determined and continued to produce at an elite level in the NCAA. The Sharks blueline has a lot of question marks due to age, health, and underachievers, leaving the door wide-open for the Alberta native. In the 2019-20 NCAA season, Pasichnuk finished third in points by a defenceman (37 points in 36 games) and first in shots on goal (121). He is a solid two-way player, but his true talent shines brightest as a powerplay quarterback. Whether it’s in the NHL or the AHL, Sharks fans must be looking forward to watching Pasichnuk unload bombs from the point next season while wearing the black and teal. Alex Howes
