With the 2016 draft just over a week away, we’re going to highlight a few players the Sharks could be targeting for their first pick late in the second round. San Jose has the 60th pick in the draft. The first round will be held on June 24 in Buffalo with the remainder of the draft scheduled for June 25.
Name: Adam Brooks
Born: May 6, 1996
Birthplace: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Weight: 174 lbs
TSN Pick Projection: 53rd overall
Brooks had 120 points for the WHL’s Regina Pats this season, which was good enough to lead the league in scoring. Brooks’ high number of assists indicates a solid passing game. He’s 20 years old already, which means the Sharks could theoretically choose to send him back to the WHL as an overager or straight to the Barracuda for the 2016-17 season.
Adam Brooks is already 20 years old, and is in his third year of draft eligibility, which is obviously a big red flag. His numbers in the WHL must be taken with a grain of salt, as he was as much as four years older than his opponents this season.
