2. Will Martin Jones regain his form?
When Martin Jones joined San Jose during the 2015-2016 campaign, he carried the Sharks to their first-ever Stanley Cup Final with a career-best 37 wins, six shutouts and a 2.27 goals against average.
For the last three seasons in teal, Jones’ GAA has steadily climbed while his quality of goaltending appears to knocked down a few notches.
Entering his seventh season in the NHL, the 29-year-old netminder needs to prove he can return to his dominant self that delivered eye-popping saves and impeccable defense in low-scoring games.
The Sharks have relied heavily on goaltending in the past with a trusty defense. Despite this the Sharks have developed quite a robust offense lately and their goalie tandem has slacked with the given upgraded production.
With that being said, it’s important that Jones, as well as his backup, rises up and matches the team’s offensive strength.
Jones has plenty of room to improve, and with another five seasons secured in his pocket as a Shark, it’s time for Jones to start trending in the right direction.
