Sharks to host top prospects, four 2019 draft picks at development camp

Four of the Sharks' picks from the 2019 NHL Draft will attend the team's development camp in San Jose this week.

Second-round picks Artemi Kniazev and Dillon Hamliuk, as well as fourth-rounder Yegor Spiridonov and sixth-rounder Santeri Hatakka will particpate, as will top Sharks prospects including Ryan Merkley (2018 first-round pick), Mario Ferraro (2017 second-round pick) and Sasha Chmelevski (2017 sixth-round pick).

In all, 46 players are scheduled to attend when camp gets underway Tuesday, and the prospects will scrimmage twice in camp.

The first scrimmage takes place Wednesday, and the prospects will scrimmage again Friday night at SAP Center. Tickets cost $10 (or $20 for four), with "net proceeds benefitting the Sharks foundation," the team said in a release.

Sharks vs. Blues live stream: How to watch NHL playoffs Game 5 online

The Sharks have yet to lose consecutive home games during their current playoff run. They'll attempt to keep that streak going when they host the Blues in Game 5 of the Western Conference final in San Jose on Sunday.

The Sharks are coming off a 2-1 loss to St. Louis in Game 4 on Friday, and lost 4-2 the last time they faced the Blues at SAP Center back in Game 2. The series is now tied at two games apiece and has been played extremely evenly. The Sharks have scored 14 goals to St. Louis' 13.

The Sharks are 18-18 all-time in Game 5 situations and 12-6 at SAP Center.

The Sharks announced on Thursday the team has partnered with Tico Sports to include a Spanish language audio broadcast for the remaining home regular season and any potential playoff games. 

These additional broadcasts will begin on March 25 as the Sharks host the Detroit Red Wings.

The audio call will be heard on the Sharks + SAP Center App and the SAP setting on NBC Sports California's television broadcast, according to a release on the team's website

"Calling the action will be Bay Area resident Ambrosio Rico, who has extensive experience calling professional sports, including six seasons (2001-05) as color analyst for the Oakland Raiders Spanish broadcast."

The release also highlights a very successful night hosted by the Sharks for the past three seasons: "Los Tiburones night," which is a night celebrating the proud Hispanic heritage and the local community of San Jose.

"We're extremely excited to build off the growing success of our Spanish broadcasts from our annual Los Tiburones Nights," said Vice President of Media Relations & Broadcasting Scott Emmert. "Our partnership with TICO will assist us in expanding the excitement of Sharks hockey to new audiences via the Sharks + SAP Center App and our television broadcast."
