Worcester Sharks from the past: where are they playing now? (2015-16 edition)

Every year I like to take a look where former Worcester Sharks are playing across pro hockey. With the team moving to San Jose to become the Barracuda this list will now only get smaller. Usually I ignore the players still in the San Jose Sharks organization, but starting this season we’ll include those guys too. The teams that are listed are generally the highest level a player had played this season, and if the player has been in the NHL that’s been placed in bold. Back-up goaltenders and other players that were signed but did not appear in games are not listed. Players not listed have no information available and are presumed to be out of pro hockey. This list is current as of a November 23.
