San Jose Sharks‘ 6th round pick in the 2010 draft (#163 overall) German-born defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser(10) is expected to make a big splash, which would make sense considering he stands 6’5″ and currently weighs 212 lbs.
He won the 2013 league championship in his final season of junior hockey and also went on to capture the Memorial Cup in what was thought to be an outstanding run by the team.
The 21-year old has shown a tremendous offensive upside especially when it comes to setting up goal scoring opportunities.
He finished juniors with 122 assists in 219 games and is already making his presence felt in minor league preseason play.
His 3-year entry level deal with the Sharks takes him through the 2014/2015.
