Korenar, who’s 23 years old, was called up by the Sharks late in the year, after spending parts of the last three seasons with the AHL’s San Jose Barracuda. He played 10 games with the Sharks, posting an .899 save percentage and a 3.17 goals against average.
Based on the small sample size, it’s hard to tell what Korenar’s ceiling is. He could get a good opportunity with the Sharks next year based on Martin Jones’ struggles though, especially if San Jose doesn’t make any offseason additions in net. There's also a good chance that he'll be the goaltender the Sharks choose to protect in the upcoming Expansion Draft.
