Summer doldrums (TWTW)

And the most exciting thing of the past week was that the NBC Sports national games were announced.  Sharks will be on NBC (once!) and NBCSN (12) for a total of 13 games.  (Max number of “national exclusive” games is 11, but not clear, right now, how many of those will be on CSNCA also.)

The other to minor things that happened this past week was that draftee Julius Bergman signed with the OHL team that drafted him in the CHL import draft.  (Transfer from Sweden not expected to be a problem.)  Which means he’ll be in North America playing, either for OHL London or the NHL Sharks (probably the former).

Logan Couture was also in the news, guesting at Smashfest, former Shark Dominic Moore’s ping pong charity tournament.  They raised $140,000 this year, benefitting his deceased wife’s memorial Katie Moore Foundation (rare cancer research) and his brother Steve Moore Foundation (concussion research).

Nothing on the schedule for the upcoming week.  So it could be on the quiet side (with folks packing up for the August “holidays”).  (Maybe an announcement of the outdoor game?)
