The Ducks will open up their preseason schedule tonight against the San Jose Sharks in San Jose. The Ducks will have a decent mixture of younger guys and vets based upon the following tweet from Eric Stephens:
Looks like Jared Coreau and Kevin Boyle will dress for Ducks tonight in San Jose.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) September 18, 2018
Likely lineup for first preseason game:
The top line definitely catches my eye. Troy Terry and Jack Kopacka are two guys that have had good camps so far and are being rewarded by being on the line with the Captain. On the back end, the Ducks are going to be trying out some new and interesting pairings.
We do not have the Sharks’ projected lines, but we do have their roster for tonight’s game per Kevin Kurz:

Unlike the Ducks, the Sharks will not be playing any of their stars, Tomas Hertl being the biggest name in the lineup.
How to Watch/Listen:

Television - This game will not be broadcast on television, but it sounds like there is a chance the Sharks will stream the game on their website, per Eric Stephens. The downside is it may only be available to people in the San Jose area.
Tonight's Ducks-Sharks exhibition affair will be on @ESPNLosAngeles (710). Viewing options aren't great. Understanding is #SJSharks may stream on website but possibly not available outside the region.— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) September 18, 2018
