True notched an assist and three hits in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
Playing in just his second NHL game, True found Stefan Noesen for the tally at 12:31 of the second period. The 22-year-old Dane has added seven hits and two shots in his time with the Sharks. True, an undrafted forward, posted 25 points in 40 contests with AHL San Jose. He'll likely serve in a bottom-six role while with the big club.
True was recalled from AHL San Jose on Monday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
True's promotion comes as Joel Kellman (undisclosed) landed on injured reserve, though the winger has certainly earned the opportunity with 25 points in 40 games with the Barracuda. If the center does get into a game for the Sharks, it will likely be in a bottom-six role over Maxim Letunov or Stefan Noesen.
True was recalled from AHL San Jose on Thursday, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
True led the Barracudas in goals (24) and points (55) in the regular season, and managed to record an assist before the team was eliminated in the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs. The 21-year-old provides some depth for the Sharks, who have some injuries at the forward position -- Melker Karlsson (undisclosed), Micheal Haley (ankle), Joonas Donskoi (undisclosed) and Joe Pavelski (head) are all day-to-day.
