The Coyotes drafted Ferriero (pronounced FAIRY-oh), but failed to sign him. Given a chance by the Sharks prior to rookie camp, the Boston College grad earned a contract and trip to main camp where he had three goals in four games while keeping Dany Heatley's spot warm on Joe Thornton's line. A longshot to make it this far, Ferriero caught the attention of coach Todd MacLellan and could stick. "He's been one of our top players," the coach said.
