Ferriero and Demers Make the Cut
The Sharks final roster has been set and 22-year-old forward Benn Ferriero and 21-year-old defenseman Jason Demers have made the list.

Since being signed as a free agent on Sept. 1, Ferriero has been the proverbial dark horse of the Sharks training camp and preseason. The 5-foot-11, 192 pound center was among the team’s top preseason scorers with three goals and two assists in five games.

Demers, a native of Dorval, Quebec, was selected by the Sharks in the 2008 National Hockey League Entry Draft (seventh round, 186th overall) and spent the 2008-09 season playing on the blueline for the Worcester Sharks, San Jose’s top development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

Tonight, both rookies will make their NHL debuts.

Originally drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft (seventh round, 196th overall), Ferriero spent four seasons playing for Boston College. After completing his final year of eligibility in the spring of 2009, Ferriero was left unsigned by Phoenix. By the end of the summer, he was picked up by San Jose.

Demers spent his junior career playing for Victoriaville of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. In 2007-08, he led all QMJHL defensemen by recording 64 points (9-55=64). He also was fourth on his team with 91 penalty minutes after attending the Sharks rookie camp in September of 2007.

As a result, three prospects were sent to Worcester: defensemen Derek Joslin and Mike Moore and forward Frazer McLaren. In addition, center Torrey Mitchell was placed on Injured Reserve.
