    Early in camp, Quinn feels Sharks are much better positioned in these three key areas

    Some of the San Jose Sharks' most recent draft picks might be assigned back to their junior hockey teams this week but they've already left a positive impression on coach David Quinn. The Sharks started camp last Thursday with 64 players split into three groups and on Monday, are expected to trim that down to a more manageable number that can fit into two groups. Among those cuts could be forwards Quentin Musty and Kasper Halttunen and defensemen Luca Cagnoni, who were all part of the Sharks' 2023 draft class in June. Musty and Halttunen are property of Sudbury and London of the Ontario Hockey League, respectively, and Cagnoni plays with Portland of the Western Hockey League.
