First of Four: The Barracuda will start a four-game home and road with the San Diego Gulls on Friday: San Jose is 23-25-6-3 lifetime against the Ducks affiliate and 13-12-3-1 at home. Entering Friday, the Barracuda have won their last two games, while San Diego has dropped its last two outings and sits at the bottom of the Pacific Division.


Gulls Flock: 19-year-old former first-rounder Jacob Perreault enters Friday riding a seven-game point streak (5+6=11). The second-year pro has 13 points (6+7=13) in 10 games played this season and is pacing the team with four power-play goals. In his career, he has 30 points (9+21=30) in 37 games played with San Diego.


Gregor the Great: Forward Noah Gregor has points in seven-straight games and is up to 12 points (4+8=12) on the year after a three-assist night on Wednesday against the Bakersfield. The third-year pro leads the team in assists (8) and points (12). Gregor’s seven-game streak is the longest of his career.


Reedy Rolling: Barracuda forward Scott Reedy netted his first multi-goal and second three-point game of his career on Wednesday against Bakersfield. The first-year pro now leads the team in goals (6) and sits second on the team in points (10). His 50% shooting percentage is ranked first in the AHL.


Blichy Boiling: Barracuda forward Joachim Blichfeld recorded his seventh career multi-goal game on Wednesday and now has seven points (3+4=7) in five home games this year.


Sommer Time: Head Coach Roy Sommer returns for his AHL-best 24th season in 2021-22 and his 26th within the Sharks organization. The Oakland, Calif. native has been behind the bench for 1,684 games, going 793-683-49-159 (W-L-T-OTL/SOL) over that span. During the 2015-16 season, the Barracuda’s first in San Jose, Sommer surpassed Fred “Bun” Cook (636 wins) for the most wins in AHL history in a 4-2 win over the Ontario Reign on Feb. 10, 2016.


Sparking Special Teams: The Barracuda have killed off nine-straight penalties with three against an eighth-ranked Condors power-play last Wednesday. San Jose is also sitting at 23.9% on the man-advantage which is fourth-best in the AHL. The Gulls also come into the game with a strong power-play at a 23.8% success rate that is tied for sixth in the league.
