Your daily assortment of links to news and analysis from around the hockey world.

  • Recaps of the Sharks' 5-4 shootout loss to Dallas. [Fear The Fin] [Mercury News] [CSN Bay Area] [NHL.com] [Defending Big D]
  • This is old news by now, but the Sharks signed NCAA free agents Rylan Schwartz (brother of the Blues' Jaden) and Eriah Hayes to entry-level contracts on Friday. [CSN Bay Area]
  • And although it appears to still be unofficial, the Sharks are reportedly set to sign Union goaltender Troy Grosenick as well. [USCHO]
  • Here's scout Corey Pronman on Schwartz and Hayes, both of whom he believes have NHL potential. [Hockey Prospectus]
  • And here's the great Chris Peters on Schwartz, Hayes and Grosenick, including some encouraging words about Schwartz in particular: "His puck skills are also at a high level and he’s shown an ability to score goals, while also proving to be a gifted distributor. He’ll need some seasoning at the AHL level, but he’s got a good chance of making it to the NHL and contributing." [United States Of Hockey]
  • Apparently, the Sharks were poised to become the first team in NHL history to go undefeated on a homestand of seven games or more. Obviously that didn't happen. [Working the Corners]
  • Saving the best for last (er, second to last?): terrific stuff by Jonathan Willis on how the Sharks sold off veterans at and prior to the trade deadline and kept on winning games. [Hockey Prospectus]
  • Reports are surfacing of an outdoor game at Dodger Stadium between the Ducks and Kings next January. [Los Angeles Times]
