The San Jose Sharks concluded their development camp last night by hosting their third annual summer prospects scrimmage at SAP Center. The Sharks prospects were split into two teams that were coached by former Sharks Mike Ricci and Bryan Marchment.

On this night, it was Ricci who got the better of Marchment as Team Ricci defeated Team Marchment 5-2 on Thursday night as Sharks fans got their first looks at many of the organization’s top young players.

Team Ricci was led by 2014 first-round draft pick Nikolay Goldobin, who assisted on the first goal of the night and scored on a penalty shot, and Barclay Goodrow who also lit the lamp. Goodrow saw action in 60 games last season with Sharks and like most rookies, had his good and bad moments. Goodrow scored four goals and added eight assists, but was a minus-one player in his first season in San Jose.

Meanwhile, Goldobin will be looking to make the Sharks in training camp as he appears to have the offensive game to succeed at the NHL level. Other goal scorers for Team Ricci included Dylan Sadowy, Nikita Jevpalovs and Alex Schoenborn.

On the other side, Team Marchment was led by rookie standout Chris Tierney. Tierney found the back of the net and will be looking to build off a successful campaign last season. While Tierney struggled at the onset, he was one of San Jose’s top forwards at the conclusion of the year and finished with six goals and 15 assists in 43 games. Tierney will be counted upon to play big minutes for the Sharks next season.

Jeremy Langlois scored the other goal for Team Marchment. Tickets for the event were $5 with the proceeds benefiting the Sharks Foundation.
