Danny O’Regan Gets “The Call”

With recent injuries to Melker Karlsson and now the unknown length of Tomas Hertl being out, the Sharks looking for more scoring punch to the roster.  Monday morning saw the Sharks call up, the current leading scorer for the San Jose Barracuda, Danny O’Regan.

O’Regan, a 5th Round pick of the Sharks in the 2012 NHL Draft is currently in his first pro season.  In eleven games with the Barracuda, he has five goals, six assists, averaging a point per game.  Prior to the joining the Sharks’ American Hockey League club, he spent four years at Boston University where he scored 66 goals, 88 assists for 154 points in 154 games with the famed college hockey powerhouse.

Per our analysts on episode 5 of Pucknology Writers Room, he has great hands, “Pavelskian” tipping expertise, albeit short stature.

A brief scouting report from one of our Barracuda Pucknologists, Kevin Lacy:

O’Regan is small and last week was centering Sörensen and Meier. He has no fear and likes to challenge. Very slippery with the puck. He’s still learning that some of his flash that worked in NCAA does not work in the professional game, especially for being so tiny.

If I recall, he has also been on PK2 for the Barracuda this season.

The 5’9″, 180 pound, German born, American citizen will sport the #65 teal jersey.  It is likely that he will line up  on the fourth line for Monday night vs. New Jersey.
