The San Jose Sharks will have 10 players from their organization participating at this year’s World Hockey Championship in Latvia, which began today. Here’s a list of the players you can watch at the tournament:

Mario Ferraro will be the sole player from the Sharks representing Canada. This will be Ferraro’s first time representing Canada in international competition.

Alexander True, who played most of the season with the AHL’s San Jose Barracuda, will represent Denmark. This will be True’s first time at the World Championship.

Lean Bergmann will be suiting up for Germany. This is his second time at the World Championships, after also playing in the 2019 tournament.

Alexander Barabanov will be playing with Russia and has quite a bit of experience at the tournament. This will be Barabanov’s fourth time representing Russia at the tournament, after playing in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Two more players from the organization will represent Sweden, in Marcus Sorensen and Tony Sund. Sorensen spent the year with San Jose, while Sund did not re-sign with the Sharks after his contract last year but is still on the team’s reserve list.

Timo Meier may be the most high profile player from the Sharks in the tournament. He’ll be representing Switzerland in his second trip to the tournament, after also playing in 2018.

Finally, the Sharks will have three players from the organization playing for the United States. From the main roster, Ryan Donato and Kevin Labanc will play in the tournament, while Sasha Chmelevski, who spent most of the season in the AHL, will also play for the United States. None of the three have played at the World Championships before but Donato did participate in the 2018 Olympics.
