History

2008-09: Cody Ferriero skated in 27 games for The Governor's Academy in Massachusetts as a junior. He scored 10 goals with 10 assists and had 87 PMs. Ferriero committed to playing college hockey at Boston College in 2010-11.

2009-10: Ferriero had a stellar draft year, scoring 21 goals with 19 assists in 27 games at The Governor’s Academy. Ferriero was ranked 117th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings and was selected by San Jose in the fifth round (127th overall) in the 2010 NHL Draft. Cody's older brother Benn was signed by the Sharks as a free agent in 2009.

2010-11: Ferriero de-committed from attending Boston College, his brother Benn's alma mater, and instead played for Beanpot and Hockey East rival Northeastern. He skated in 34 games as a freshman, playing alongside fellow Sharks draftees Drew and Justin Daniels. Ferriero scored 4 goals with 3 assists and was +1 with 38 PMs. The Huskies finished sixth in Hockey East and lost to defending national champion Boston College in the Hockey East semifinals, finishing 14-16-8 for the year.

2011-12: Ferriero was having an excellent sophomore year on the top line for Northeastern before he underwent surgery for a torn Meniscus in his knee and missed the second half of the season. He had doubled his offensive numbers of his freshman year by scoring nine goals (one power play, two GWG) along with six assists and a good plus 15 rating in only 17 NCAA games.

2012-13: Ferriero bounced back from his knee injury to play in all 34 games for Northeastern during his junior season. He was the Huskies' third-leading scorer with 12 goals and 14 assists and was -15 with 60 penalty minutes. He scored seven goals on the Northeastern power play. The Huskies finished last in Hockey East; winning just nine games.

 

Talent Analysis

Ferriero is a talented young scorer with consistency problems. He has shown an ability in the Hockey East league to be dominant at times, but it has been a struggle for him to play that way for the duration of a full season. His puck skills, aside from his shot, are just below average, but he is smart enough to work around these deficiencies on the ice. One important adjustment he will need to make is he has very poor shot choices in traffic that often result in odd-man rushes the other way. He will need to improve his entire offensive skill set if he hopes to join his brother Ben Ferriero in the NHL, or at the very least earn a contract at season's end.

 

Future

Cody Ferriero will head into camp healthy to play his senior season with Northeastern University this 2013-14 season. He will need to stay healthy and play consistent if he wants to earn a contract.

Last season, San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson spoke adamantly about how the team would be going through a refresh rather than a restart. He would add small doses of youth along the way instead of tearing down his veteran squad for a full-fledged rebuild.

Built almost entirely out of the later rounds of the draft, the San Jose Sharks NCAA prospect pool features a good mix of size and a small handful of potential NHL regulars. Of the 10 Sharks prospects who played college hockey during the 2012-13 season, eight were selected in the fifth round or later.

The San Jose Sharks prospect pool continues to get better and better. The 2012-13 season has been a strong one for development, and while there looks to be a gap in high-end skill after top prospect Tomas Hertl, a number of prospects have really played themselves into the limelight and have shown at times an ability to possibly fill that gap.
