Dylan DeMelo seems to be settling in as the Sharks' third defenseman.

DeMelo has dressed for nine straight games and has been playing alongside Brenden Dillon. "I think he is passing the test," Sharks coach Pete DeBoer said of DeMelo. "I don’t know when that test ever ends. I don’t think there’s a cutoff point where you say ‘OK, now you’ve arrived,’ but he’s been very reliable, steady and safe. I know [Sharks asst. coach] Bob Boughner feels very comfortable with him. And, he’s a competitive kid on top of that. He makes good decisions, and I think we feel real good about where he’s at right now and how he’s helping us." The 22-year-old blueliner has no points in 11 games, but he does have a bit of offensive upside.
Jan 1 - 11:36 AM

Dylan DeMelo will suit up in a second consecutive game on Saturday night.

Coach Peter DeBoer liked what he saw from DeMelo is San Jose's last game against the Oilers. "Edmonton’s ice and Edmonton’s team is about as fast a team as you can have, so it was a great test for him," DeBoer said. "If he can handle that situation than we wouldn’t have any concerns about him against other teams, so I thought he did a great job." It's just his fourth game of the season and the second time he plays in back-to-back games.
