Former Worcester Sharks: where are they playing now? (2016-17 fall edition)

Every year I like to take a look where former Worcester Sharks are playing across pro hockey. Usually it’s just one post more toward the middle of the season, but this time we’ll list where former WorSharks are playing at the start of the 2016-17 season and then update it in early spring.

The teams that are listed are the highest level a player has 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 by the WorSharks but did not appear in games are not listed, nor are players currently playing levels of hockey that are not “full professional” leagues. This list is current as of October 23.
