Roenick to make Sharks debut

Jeremy Roenick will make his Sharks debut Thursday at Edmonton due to rookie Devin Setoguchi's ankle injury.

Roenick, who has 495 career goals, was expected to be a healthy scratch in the season opener against the Oilers, but will step in at right wing. Roenick signed a one-year contract with the Sharks 10 days before the start of training camp.

Setoguchi was expected to be on a line with left wing Milan Michalek and rookie center Torrey Mitchell, who will be making his NHL debut in the 6 p.m. game. Setoguchi, selected by the Sharks with the eighth overall pick in 2005, was also slated to make his NHL debut before his ankle injury.
