Sharks training camp reductions - yesterday's news

I'm a little tardy in reporting this - but the San Jose Sharks reduced their training camp roster yet again.

Heading to Worcester, MA are the following players =

Tom Cavanagh (C)

Jason Demers (D)

Thomas Greiss (G)

Jamie McGinn (LW)

Michael Wilson (D)

Steven Zalewski (C)

The most notable of those heading to Worcester is 22-year old German goaltender Thomas Greiss, whose NHL record is 0-1-1, with 3 games under his belt (he replaced the slightly injured Evgeni Nabokov for part of the second period in February @ New York Islanders, but Nabby came back to finish the game - and give up three goals - resulting in a loss, which I had to suffer while in the aged stands of Nassau Coliseum). The closest he came to victory was against the Anaheim Ducks in a 4-3 O.T. loss at the Pond (thank you very much, Alexei Semenov); his credited loss came in New Jersey, two days after the Islanders game (um, I also suffered through that one in the not-so-aged stands of the Prudential Center).

Tom Cavanagh is noteworthy for having an assist on his very first NHL shift - on a Joe Thornton goal! The 26-year old Rhode Island native played in only one NHL game last year.

The Sharks (2-3-0) are in Vancouver tonight to take on the still-unbeaten Canucks (5-0-0), at 7pm PST.

Did you mean Worcester? If you're going to follow the Sharks to the other coast you should know that Massholes say it Wistah. :o)
