    Top 25 San Jose Sharks Under 25: Filip Sandberg is a potential fan favorite at No. 25

    23-year-old Filip Sandberg has the makings of a future fan favorite. The 5-foot-9, 181 pound Swedish forward is known for his work ethic and intensity, as San Jose Sharks General Manager cited his “battle level” when the team signed Sandberg in May. Undrafted and undersized, Sandberg projects to be a third-or-fourth liner if he makes the NHL, McKeen’s Jimmy Hamrin told Dobber Prospects Radio in June.

    A pair of former San Jose Sharks draft picks are no longer part of the organization, as the team opted not to sign them before the expiration of their club rights today. 2012 sixth round pick Clifford Watson became an unrestricted free agent today, the Sharks confirmed. 2013 fifth round pick Gage Ausmus was also unsigned, but he signed with the ECHL’s Colorado Eagles earlier this month. Under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement, teams retain the draft rights of an NCAA player until August 15 of their graduating year, provided the player remains enrolled in school at the start of their senior season. Watson and Ausmus graduated this year, four years after enrolling at Michigan Tech and the
