The San Jose Sharks added to their supply of forward prospects with their first three picks in the second day of the NHL draft in Pittsburgh on Saturday, then turned to defensemen with their final two choices.
San Jose took Chris Tierney, a center with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League in the second round with the 55th overall pick, then sent two later picks to the Chicago Blackhawks for a fourth-round choice.
With the 109th overall pick from Chicago, the Sharks took Christophe Lalancette, a 6-foot, 178 pound right wing from Acadie-Bathurst of the Quebec Junior Major Hockey League.
The Sharks then used the 138th pick to select Daniel O'Regan, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound center who played high school hockey at St. Sebastian's and will play at Boston University in the fall.
General manager Doug Wilson did take a defenseman in the 6th round, selecting Cliff Watson, a 6-foot-2, 195-pound blueliner with Sioux City of the USHL with the 168th overall pick, then made 5-foot-10, 182-pound defenseman Joakim Ryan of Cornell this year's final selection in the 7th round at 198th.
Wilson also took a forward in the first round Friday night when he picked Tomas Hertl, a center from the Czech Republic.
