Here's your 2014-15 San Jose Sharks opening night roster

New, comments

Final cuts have been made and the roster is set prior to tomorrow's opener.

In a little over 30 hours, following an unwatchable banner-raising ceremony, the Sharks will face off against the Kings in Los Angeles for the first game of their 2014-15 regular season. With the deadline to name their 23-man opening night roster looming, GM Doug Wilson has made the final moves necessary to whittle the team down to the league-mandated number. Defenseman Taylor Doherty has cleared waivers and been assigned to Worcester while Barclay Goodrow, who did make the final cut, will start the season on injured reserve, bringing the Sharks down to the required 23. Here's a look at the team's opening night roster, complete with projected line combinations and defense pairings (the team still hasn't announced their starting goalie for tomorrow's game so the order there is meaningless):

Tomas Hertl - Joe Thornton - Joe Pavelski
Patrick Marleau - Logan Couture - Matt Nieto
Tye McGinn - Chris Tierney - Tommy Wingels
Andrew Desjardins - Adam Burish - Mike Brown
IR: Barclay Goodrow, Tyler Kennedy, James Sheppard, Raffi Torres
Scratches: Eriah Hayes, John Scott

Marc-Edouard Vlasic - Justin Braun
Mirco Mueller - Brent Burns
Matt Irwin - Jason Demers
Scratches: Scott Hannan
