Sharks Third Round Pick Is Max Gaede

With their third round pick, the San Jose Sharks took right winger Max Gaede. One of SB Nation's blogs, Western College Hockey, has a very good prospect profile on him.

Gaede really rose up draft boards all year long. He made it all the way up to 104th on the final Central Scouting rankings, and now looks like a lock to be selected somewhere on the second day of the draft.

He's a bit of a raw talent. Playing high school hockey at Woodbury, he wasn't always playing with or against equal or better talent, and his skating could still probably use some work. But he's got some intriguing potential as a power forward once he fills out a little more that can make plays offensively.

Gaede was considered by most scouting sources as a fourth round pick and is only perceived as a slight reach.
