Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks
The NHL’s March 5 trade deadline is just 11 days after the Olympic roster freeze ends on Feb. 23.
Don’t expect any major moves from the San Jose Sharks, who are a virtual lock to make it to the postseason, could still make a run at the Pacific Division title with a little luck, and will be getting some key players back for the stretch run.
In a conversation just before the Olympic break when asked about the approaching deadline, general manager Doug Wilson pointed to the numerous Sharks that are ready to return from injury, including Logan Couture and Raffi Torres, who has yet to make his season debut. Adam Burish played his first two games of the season just before the break, so he’ll still be finding his legs when the season resumes on Feb. 27 in Philadelphia, too.
