The San Jose Sharks took centerman Noah Gregor with the 111th pick in the 2016 NHL Draft. The center out of Moose Jaw scored 73 points in the 2015-16 season.

It looks like the Sharks got a real solid scorer with their fourth round pick, as Gregor piled up 28 goals and 45 assists with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League.

Here’s a little more on Gregor from All About the Jersey:

It's early in the prospect profiling season here at AAtJ, and a number of other players will be looked at in this range, but my impression on Noah Gregor is that he would be a player I can get behind picking at the 41st spot. He put up over a point per game as a 17-year-old (albeit with very good linemates) and based on the scouting reports, may have the type of vision and playmaking instincts on offense the the Devils seem to be perpetually lacking. He flew under the radar for much of the season, so there is perhaps a chance he's a bit undervalued where he is. Based on his rising rankings, scouts might be catching on, but if he's available when the Devils are up in the second round, it seems like he'd be a solid choice.

Seems like this bodes well for the Sharks, who reached to take Dylan Gambrell in the second round. San Jose got a great scorer in the middle round and took another step towards restocking the center cupboard.

Here’s a nifty highlight package put together by Gregor’s junior team.

The Sharks next pick is their own fifth round pick at No. 150. What do you think of this selection? And who should San Jose take next?
