Despite becoming fatigued earlir than he had wanted, Sean Kuraly attended the San Jose Sharks development camp a few weeks ago and enjoyed being back on the ice with a few new faces. And it was his first time ever at the Shark Tank.
Kuraly focused on the small areas he needed to improve in addition to the detail work on the ice during the camp. “I try to put a lot of emphasis on those little details, on doing the small things right and hope that the end result comes.”
Kuraly uses his speed well and improving his offensive play will be his key to making it to the professional level. He played the 2013-14 campaign with Miami University (Ohio), where he played in 38 games and recorded 12 goals and 17 assists. He increased his total points from 41 in the 2012-13 season to 59 last season. These stats alone are proof that he is indeed improving his play and plans to give the other rookies on the roster a fight for their money.
The best part of camp for Kuraly was the fact that fans attended. Not only was in an amazing experience, but it helped those who attended get a feeling of what it would be like as an actual Shark.
Kuraly was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in Round 5 of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, No. 133 overall.
