Ryan Merkley reportedly requests trade

San Jose Sharks defender Ryan Merkley recently requested a trade and general manager Mike Grier is trying to accommodate, per the Daily Faceoff’s Frank Seravalli. Merkley was the team’s first-round pick in 2018, selected 21st overall by former general manager Doug Wilson and scouting director Doug Wilson Jr. The Oakville, Ontario native is in the third year of his three-year entry-level contract and will become a restricted free agent at the end of this season.

Merkley has played in 39 NHL games with the Sharks, all during the 2021-22 season whilst the roster was heavily impacted by COVID.
