The Sharks will take a stride into their future Tuesday in the first round of the 2020 NHL Draft.
San Jose is set to make the final selection of the first round (No. 31 overall), after acquiring a first-round pick from the Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning at the trade deadline in February. The Sharks would've picked No. 3 overall if they still held their own pick, but that selection belongs to the Ottawa Senators as a condition of the Erik Karlsson trade.
General manager Doug Wilson acquired winger Ryan Donato and goaltender Devan Dubnyk in a pair of trades with the Minnesota Wild on Monday, and he implied last week that the Sharks would prefer to hang on to their first three picks, due to the depth of this year's draft class. Was that pre-draft posturing, or will the Sharks maintain a focus on the future rather than pivoting to the present?
Here's how you can watch the Sharks make their first-round selection live online and on TV.
When: Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT
