2. Alexander (Sasha) Chmelevski

It was another successful season for Chmelevski with the Ottawa 67’s, compiling 31 goals and 39 assists in 52 games.On February 18th he exhibited how explosive he is on offense by scoring 5 goals in one game versus the Kitchener Rangers.

The 19-year-old Huntington Beach native also excelled in the 2019 World Junior Championships. Chmelevski played a critical role on Team USA U20 in their silver medal finish.

As the lone Sharks representative in the WJC, Chmelevski shined in the bright lights alongside projected 2019 No. 1 overall pick in this year’s NHL Draft in Jack Hughes and Boston University product Joel Farabee.

Chmelevski was second among Americans with four goals and seven points as he sparked the scoring threat in the top line right-wing position.

Chmelevski future is bright as he continues to sharpen his swift puck-handling and skating skills, which allows him to smoothly evade the opposition and create space in the offensive zone.

Keep your eyes peeled on Chmelevski. He’s a San Jose Sharks scoring star in the making.
