The summer has officially come to an end, and with the calendar turning to September, San Jose Sharks hockey is just around the corner.
According to Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News, the Sharks full roster will begin training camp in just 13 days, on Sept. 18, at Sharks Ice in San Jose.
It will be an important training camp for the San Jose Sharks as new head coach Peter DeBoer looks to implement his own style of play. The Sharks are coming off one of their worst seasons in recent memory and the foundation for the 2015-16 season begins during training camp.
On paper, San Jose doesn’t have many open slots within their lineup, but it will be interesting to see how young players such as Nikolay Goldobin, Joonas Donskoi, Mirco Mueller and Dylan DeMelo perform. Will these talented youngsters be able to unseat veterans in the lineup?

San Jose Sharks Prospect Impresses
While the Sharks training camp still has two weeks before it begins, one San Jose prospect put on quite a show when his team opened up camp. Dylan Sadowy, who plays for the Saginaw Spirit of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), scored five goals during one scrimmage session as he prepares for his fourth season in the OHL.
Sadowy, who was originally a third round pick (number 81 overall) by the Sharks back in 2014, has steadily improved in each season in the OHL.
In his first season with the Spirit, Sadowy registered a measly eight points in 61 games during the 2012-13 season. He took a step forward during the following season as he deposited 27 goals to go along with nine assists in 68 games.
Sadowy experienced a real breakout campaign last year as he scored 42 goals and added 32 assists, good for 74 points. The six-foot-one, 181-pound forward is beginning to come into his own and is developing a real knack for finding the back of the net.
If Sadowy continues his development, he should be expected to push for a 100-point campaign in the OHL. Expect another big year from Sadowy who is becoming a nice prospect within the Sharks organization.
