Former Red Wings draft pick gets second chance with Sharks

SAN JOSE — Zach Gallant may have entered the Sharks’ development camp last week on a tryout basis. But he definitely made his presence felt, particularly in the waning moments of the prospects’ scrimmage at SAP Center.

Right at the end of the game, before a few thousand fans in attendance, Gallant, 20, got into a brief, but spirited fight with fellow forward Lean Bergmann — a rare event in those type of games. Gallant wound up on top of Bergmann, 20, of Germany, and connected with a couple of right hands before the linesmen intervened.

“Hey, you know what, (fighting’s) still part of the game and it’s not outlawed,” Barracuda coach Roy Sommer said after Friday’s scrimmage.
