Sharks recall prospect Mukhamadullin for possible NHL debut

The San Jose Sharks have called up defenseman Shakir Mukhamadullin.

Down Mario Ferraro, Ty Emberson, Jacob MacDonald, and possibly more defensemen, the Sharks look like they’re giving their top defensive prospect his first NHL shot.

The Sharks host the Buffalo Sabres at 1 p.m. PT on Saturday.
