The San Jose Sharks have released their training camp roster.
There’s no Joe Thornton or any other surprise in this.

By the way, don’t take Cardwell’s addition to the training camp roster as a guarantee that the Sharks won’t send him back to Barry. Blichfeld, Gregor were both on the Sharks’ 2018 camp roster, before being sent back to the Juniors for their overage season

Sharks fans were stirred by reports that fan favorite Thornton had moved back to San Jose — and video of Jumbo working in teal.
Thornton is believed to wish to play his 25th NHL season. The 43-year-old was the No. 1 pick of the UFA 1997 NHL Draft, and played at San Jose from 2005 to 2020.
At the moment, we’re not sure what Thornton’s future will hold.
Instead, William Eklund and Thomas Bordeleau will be among the youngsters competing for the jobs of the San Jose Sharks. They star in 12 anticipated opening night sharks for roles with Max Veroneau, Jasper Weatherby, Scott Reedy, Jonah Gadjovic, and Jeffrey Weil alongside Tomas Hertl, Logan Couture, Timo Meyer, Kevin LaBlanc, Luke Kunin, Oscar Lindblom, Alexander will compete. Barbanov, Nick Bonino, Nico Sturm, Matt Nieto, Noah Gregor and Steven Lorentz.
Prospects Ryan Merkle, Santeri Hatakka, Artemi Niyazev and Nick Sisek will also try to seize a spot on the blueline. Eric Carlson, Mario Ferraro, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Radim Simek, Matt Benning, Jakob Magna and Marcus Nutivara are the seven seasoned functionaries on the San Jose defense.
There are plans for Kapo Kahkonen and James Reimer to share the net for the San Jose Sharks this year, but I wonder which No. 3 goalkeeper they’ll bring to Europe? Ex-Sharks back-up Aaron Del has been a part of the Captain’s skates, but perhaps Strauss Mann and Etu Makinemi will pursue Dale.
