On the NHL/SJ Sharks Podcast with Joe Lami, Sharks general manager Doug Wilson is pretty satisfied with signing free agents winger Mikkel Boedker and defenseman David Schlemko. “We know where the game is going. We want to be ahead of the curve, Mikkel was obvious a high first-round pick for a reason. His skill level and talent and speed are off the charts. David just moves the puck quickly, great poise with the puck. It fits in with the things we want to do.” said Wilson
The Sharks signing of 29 year old Schlemko gives them a player who had a working relationship with Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer that DeBoer feels really benefits the Sharks going into the 2016-17 season, “He’s one of those players you coach over your career where he makes an impression both as a player and as a person” said DeBoer.
