Sharks’ Chmelevski processing game faster than ever originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Skating isn’t the most important thing.

Sasha Chmelevski’s current stint with the San Jose Sharks is a study in that.

Chmelevski, along with John Leonard, started Saturday night on the fourth line flanking Scott Reedy. But after the Sharks got down 4-1 in the first period to the Dallas Stars, head coach Bob Boughner elevated Chmelevski next to Logan Couture.

“I thought Sasha’s game was strong. I knew that right off the bat,” Boughner said. “You try and make adjustments as a game goes on and give guys opportunities where they deserve, and I thought he deserved that opportunity to play on that big line.”

And indeed, the promotion paid immediate dividends, as both Chmelevski and Logan Couture showed how smarts can trump skating.
