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.

In the first edition of On the Rush for the 2012-13 season, we take a look at prospects either excelling at their respective levels of play as well as those players who are not quite living up to expectations. This month we take a look at how the NHL lockout is impacting prospects playing in the minor leagues and junior levels and also discuss several top performers from the recent Subway Super Series between Team Russia and the CHL's top players.

The San Jose Sharks have long believed in the philosophy of taking things slow, and letting young players develop to earn the opportunity to play with the big club. Unfortunately for the Sharks in the last five years, there have not been many opportunities earned.

The San Jose Sharks finished the 2011-12 season with arguably the worst prospect pool in the entire NHL. This has been a familiar trend within the Sharks organization over the past few seasons as they have looked to contend in the Western Conference and have sacrificed some of their future to do so. Despite the lack of top-tier talent, the Sharks’ prospect pipeline has become something of a well-oiled machine; year after year lesser known, unheralded players go in, and well-developed, NHL-ready talent comes out. The Sharks head into the 2012-13 season with a strong batch of relative unknowns, hoping to silence the critics.

The San Jose Sharks have improved the team's organizational depth with the addition of their 2012 NHL Draft selections, but it could take four to five years to see the results. Three of the team's six new draftees have high skill levels at this stage of their development and made this edition of the Sharks' Top 20 list. Newly-drafted Tomas Hertl has replaced Freddie Hamilton as the number one prospect in the San Jose Sharks organization.

The San Jose Sharks have seen some of their prospects demonstrate solid development over the 2011-12 season while others have been seemingly stuck in neutral. Benn Ferriero and Justin Braun have graduated since the last Top 20 list while others such as Taylor Doherty, Harri Sateri, Nick Petrecki, and Brandon Mashinter have seen their stock decline over the season. The organization signed several quality free agents this spring including Travis Oleksuk, Matt Tennyson, and Sebastien Stalberg.
