FILE - In this April 16, 2018, file photo, San Jose Sharks center Eric Fehr (16) is congratulated by teammates after scoring a goal against the Anaheim Ducks during the second period of Game 3 of an NHL hockey first-round playoff series in San Jose, Calif. Fehr and Marcus Sorensen spent most of the season toiling in the AHL, just waiting for their chance. That opportunity has arrived in the playoffs for San Jose and those two fourth-line forwards are a major reason why the Sharks swept Anaheim to advance to a second-round series against Vegas.
