For the first time, the Sharks held a prospects scrimmage in public Thursday, giving about 700 hardcore followers who filled the south rink at Sharks Ice a glimpse of what the future may hold.

Of the 45 prospects, Tomas Hertl is considered the one most likely to be on the roster when the Sharks open the 2013-14 season.

"We don't over-promote players, but he's potentially a pretty special player," general manager Doug Wilson said.

Hertl, 19, earned an assist on Petter Emanuelsson's goal, but came up short on a breakaway as their team with Mike Ricci behind the bench lost 4-3 in overtime to a team coached by Bryan Marchment. Daniil Tarasov scored twice for Marchment's team.

The Cardinal's Ben Gardner, Trent Murphy, Shayne Skov and Ed Reynolds were on the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (nation's best defensive player) watch list. San Jose State defensive back Bene Benwikere was also on that list.
