There’s 23 players and 21 skaters listed in that expected lineup, both of which are above regular game requirements. Based on the NHL’s required minimum number of veterans in the preseason, the Sharks’ lineup could look something like:





Martin (scratch)

Blackwell (scratch)




Middleton (scratch)
