Logan Couture has been added to Team Canada's roster for the upcoming World Cup of Hockey.

Couture will take injured Stars forward Jamie Benn's place on the roster. The Sharks forward suffered a broken fibula in October and came back to score 15 goals and 36 points in 52 games last season. He caught fire in the playoffs, as he added 10 goals and 30 points in all 24 of San Jose's games.

Marcus Sorensen knows it won't be easy, but his plan is to stick with the San Jose Sharks in 2016-17.

Sorensen was originally drafted by Ottawa in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He never signed with the Senators and eventually became a free agent. In May, the 24-year-old agreed to a one-year, entry-level deal with San Jose. "Of course I see that opportunity, but it's really hard," Sorensen said at development camp. "There's a lot of guys battling for a few spots. It's going to be hard, but of course those guys are doing really good, so I'm trying to go the same way. I'm doing 100 percent every day. That's what I want." Sorensen had 15 goals and 34 points in 47 games with Djugardens (Sweden) last season.

Sharks captain Joe Pavelski will reportedly wear the "C" for Team USA at the World Cup of Hockey.

In his first season as captain of the Sharks, Pavelski helped lead his team to the Stanley Cup Final. Pavelski had 38 goals and 78 points during the regular season and 23 points in 24 games during the playoffs. The 32-year-old has represented Team USA on three other occasions. Twice at the Olympics (2010, 2014) and once at the World Championship (2009).

Nikolay Goldobin will be looking for more NHL action this season.

He made nine appearances with the big club in 2015-16 and he contributed one goal and one assist. In the AHL with the San Jose Barracuda, Goldobin registered 21 goals and 44 points in 60 contests. It will be difficult to earn a spot with the Sharks out of training camp, though.

Logan Couture has been bulking up in the off-season.

He is reportedly 10 pounds heavier than his listed weight of 200 for the 2015-16 season. Couture wants to be strong to battle with the top players in the Pacific Division and he wants to be in top condition after playing in 52 games last season.

Nick Spaling has signed a one-year deal, with 1-year option, with Geneve-Servette HC of Switzerland's National League A.

GM Chris McSorley feels that Spaling's chemistry with fellow import Mike Santorelli should prove to be an advantage. They both started their NHL careers with Nashville. Spaling skated in 58 games with Toronto and San Jose last season.

Patrick Marleau may start on the third line in 2016-17.

The Sharks have some decisions to make at training camp. If Timo Meier makes the team then he could end up playing on the top line and Mikkel Boedker may skate alongside Logan Couture. That could leave Marleau at center or left wing on the third unit. Marleau, who has seen his play decline in the last two years, can become an unrestricted free agent next summer. It's unclear what his future with the Sharks will be, but playing for a new deal could motivate him.
Aug 1 - 12:28 PM

David Schlemko is projected to play alongside Brenden Dillon on the Sharks' third defense pairing.

San Jose wanted to add some more mobility than they had when Roman Polak played with Dillon. Dylan DeMelo may be in the mix too on the third pairing, where he could sub in for Dillon for some games over the course of the season.
Jul 31 - 6:18 PM

Timo Meier will be worth watching at San Jose's training camp.

He could be ready for NHL action in 2016-17, with a possible spot on a line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski. Meier, who was selected with the ninth overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, has the talent and the size to be successful in the big league an playing on the top line would give him an obvious boost. If he isn't ready then Meier will hone his skills in the AHL.
Jul 31 - 5:05 PM

Mikkel Boedker is projected to start as a top-six forward with the Sharks.

He will likely line up alongside Logan Couture. San Jose is hoping that Boedker will be an upgrade over Patrick Marleau, Tommy Wingels, Matt Nieto and Melker Karlsson, who have occupied that spot in the past.
Jul 31 - 3:06 PM

Matthew Nieto has inked a one-year, $735,000 contract with the San Jose Sharks,

Matthew Nieto had eight goals and 17 points in 67 regular season games with the Sharks in 2015-16. He added another goal and two assists in 16 playoff contests.
Jul 17 - 11:59 PM

Ryan Carpenter has agreed to a one-year contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Carpenter scored 18 goals and 55 points in 66 AHL contests in 2015-16. He made his NHL debut on Dec. 12, but hasn't appeared in another game with the San Jose Sharks since.
Jul 15 - 2:09 PM

The San Jose Sharks have inked a two-year contract with Dylan DeMelo.

DeMelo's deal is reportedly two-ways in 2016-17, but turns into a one-way contract for the 2017-18 campaign. He had two goals and four points in 45 contests last season.
Jul 13 - 2:01 PM

The San Jose Sharks have signed Dan Kelly to a one-year deal.

Kelly had 15 points and 93 penalty minutes in 55 AHL contests in 2015-16. The 27-year-old defenseman hasn't played in the NHL.
Jul 12 - 8:35 PM

Mikkel Boedker said he left money on the table to play for the San Jose Sharks.

Boedker inked a four-year, $16 million contract with the Sharks on July 1. "There were teams with more money and that sort of thing, but I chose to follow my [gut] and follow what I thought was right, and that was going to San Jose and trying to live out my dream in winning a Stanley Cup," Boedker said. "I chose San Jose for a number of reasons. The obvious is that Pete is there, and the other obvious one [is] they proved this year that they can win, and they are a contender." As we've previously mentioned, Boedker and Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer did work together back when they were both part of OHL Kitchener. Boedker had 17 goals and 51 points in 80 games between Arizona and Colorado in 2015-16.
