Fantasy Summary

A power-play specialist who isn’t afraid to unload his shot from anywhere on the ice. An elusive skater who is credited with a tremendous work ethic and a strong two-way game. Built solid, although size remains a question mark.

September 2022 – Pasichnuk was not offered a contract by the San Jose Sharks and will become a free agent. Pat Quinn


June 2022 – Pasichnuk has shown an offensive flair at lower levels however we are still waiting for the breakout in the professional ranks. In parts of two seasons with the Barracuda, he has nine points in 41 games however at both the NCAA and AJHL level he has been among the leading defensive point producers in the league. At 24, needing a new contract, and having missed almost the entirety of last season with various injuries and ailments, Pasichnuk may have an uphill road to the NHL but his latent potential remains.

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
