Shark Bait (Mitchell Out / Personnel additions)

Bummer.  Y! Sports reports Torrey Mitchell will be out at least two months after suffering a broken leg:


SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)—Sharks center Torrey Mitchell will be out at least two months after breaking his left leg Sunday during the second practice of San Jose’s training camp.

Mitchell, who had 10 goals and 10 assists as a rookie last season, broke both major bones in his lower leg when he crashed into the post while driving to the net during a scrimmage. He was scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday night.

San Jose doesn’t expect Mitchell to return to the ice until mid-November at the earliest, keeping him out for at least the first five weeks of the regular season.

Also, it looks like the Sharks shored up their personnel a little bit. Can someone explain to me the impact this could have for the future?


SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP)—The San Jose Sharks hired former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager John Ferguson Jr. on Sunday to be their director of pro scouting.

Ferguson was fired by Toronto in January after 4 1/2 seasons running the Leafs. His father, the former New York Rangers coach who died in July 2007, spent 11 seasons working in the Sharks organization.

San Jose also added former Chicago coach Dirk Graham to its scouting staff along with Shin Larsson and Jason Rowe. Graham, a 12-year NHL veteran who won the Selke Trophy in 1991, spent the last two seasons scouting for Tampa Bay.
