The San Jose Sharks' affiliate has picked up just one point in a shootout loss to Norfolk.
It's a slow start to the season for the Worcester Sharks as they sit in last in the Atlantic Division of the AHL's Eastern Conference. They picked up one point in their second game of the season, a shootout loss to the Norfolk Admirals, the Anaheim Ducks' affiliate. They're five points behind the conference leading Manchester Monarchs, the Los Angeles Kings' affiliate, who sit atop the division with six points.
The Sharks aren't in last place in the conference standings though; that distinction belongs to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins who have a goose egg in the points column.
Right wing Sebastian Stalberg is off to a hot start for the Sharks. The former All-American at the University of Vermont had three goals in 13 games played last season and has matched his goal scoring total from last season in just four games in the 2012-2013 campaign. Defenseman Matt Irwin is leading the team in points with four, all of those points coming off assists. The 24-year old is in his fourth season with Worcester.
