VANCOUVER -- Hunter Shinkaruk made his first game with seasoned NHL pros a memorable one. The 18-year-old Vancouver rookie scored a goal and helped set up another one, although he did not get an assist, as the Canucks dropped a 3-2 decision to the San Jose Sharks in the first pre-season game for both teams Monday night. "Obviously, with the goal, it was very exciting," said Shinkaruk, who was Vancouvers first choice (24th overall) in this years NHL draft. "It was definitely a moment I didnt forget, and it was a lot of fun." Shinkaruk helped the Canucks rally from a 2-1 deficit early in the third period before Tommy Wingels goal with 3:53 left in the game lifted the Sharks to victory. The Canucks rookie put in a high shot from a sharp angle as he feigned to pass from near the goal-line but fired the puck over San Jose goaltender Alex Stalocks back instead. "I saw a little bit of corner up there," said Shinkaruk. "Its not all the time I put it up there. Its every now and then and, luckily enough, it just worked out." Shinkaruk, a Calgary native who has spent the past three seasons with the Medicine Hat Tigers of the WHL, is trying to make the Canucks in his first pro season. Because of his age, he must return to Medicine Hat if he does not crack the NHL clubs roster. Hes also a candidate for Canadas world junior team. One of Vancouvers two first-round draft picks this year, he started the game on a line with Burrows and Kesler and looked reasonably comfortable while seeing some power-play time with them. The Canucks went with six NHL regulars from last season, including Burrows and Ryan Kesler. Frank Corrado, 20, who toiled for Vancouver late in the season after completing his junior campaign, also played. Daniel and Henrik Sedin were among veterans who received the night off. The Sharks used seven players who finished the season as regulars. After impressing new coach John Tortorella in on-ice testing just by skating in circles last Thursday, Shinkaruk also got a response out of assistant Mike Sullivan, who handled questions from the media after the game. "That was a goal-scorers goal, off the angle like that, that top shelf, short side," said Sullivan. "(Shinkaruk) is an easy guy to like. He plays with a lot of moxie. He loves hockey. Hes been a lot of fun to share the first few days with here." Wingels and Joe Pavelski both produced a goal and an assist for the Sharks while John McCarthy scored their other goal. Brendan Gaunce, Vancouvers top 2012 draft pick (26th overall), had Vancouvers other goal. Defenceman Henrik Tommernes recorded two assists. Gaunce created a 1-1 tie at 17:46 of the opening period as he put Dale Weises rebound in off a San Jose defencemans stick. Shinkaruk factored into the net by charging up the middle to the net and creating a distraction for San Jose goalie Stalock while attempting to deflect the initial shot. "I thought it was a great play all around," said Sullivan. "It was a real hard net drive. I thought Weiser, it was a real heads up play. Hes shooting for that rebound." Shinkaruk is one of two 2013 first-round draft choices trying to make the Canucks, along with 18-year-old centre Bo Horvat, who was chosen ninth overall with the pick Vancouver acquired from the New Jersey Devils for goaltender Cory Schneider. The two prospects, who share the same agent and have become fast friends, were reunited in the second period after playing together in a recent prospects tournament in Penticton, B.C., and during a Canucks summer camp for young players. Sullivan liked what he saw of Shinkaruk, Horvat and Nicklas Jensen, 20, Vancouvers top 2011 draft choice (29th overall) when they were put together in the second period. "I thought when we put that kid line together about halfway through the game, they brought us some energy," said Sullivan. Goaltender Eddie Lack, vying for Vancouvers backup job behind Roberto Luongo after the Schneider trade, also impressed as he stopped 25-of-27 shots in two periods of work. Lack showed no ill effects in his first game since undergoing season-ending hip surgery last November while a member of Vancouvers former Chicago Wolves farm club in the AHL. "I was a little bit rusty but, overall, I felt kind of good out there," said Lack, a 25-year-old Norrtalje, Sweden native, who has spent the past three seasons, including an abbreviated 2012-13 campaign, in the minors. Sullivan, who followed Tortorella to the Canucks after working alongside him with the New York Rangers, also praised the netminder despite being dissatisfied with some parts of Vancouvers game, especially in the second period. "He certainly got a fair amount of work," said Sullivan. "He got tested, so I thought he played a real solid game." Notes: Joe Cannata, who split his first full pro season between Vancouvers former Chicago Wolves farm club in the AHL and the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL, played the third period in goal for the Canucks. He recorded 13 saves as the Sharks outshot the Canucks 15-2 in the final period and 42-15 overall. ...

MIAMI -- Zack Wheeler and the New York Mets got the best of Andrew Heaney during the Marlins prospects major league debut. Wheeler tossed his first shutout and made David Wrights first-inning home run hold up in the Mets 1-0 victory over Miami on Thursday night. "He showed you exactly what weve been talking about all along -- plus stuff. Tremendous, great effort," Mets manager Terry Collins said of Wheeler. "He went after them. It was his night." Wheeler (3-7) outdueled Heaney in the longest outing of the Mets starters career. "It feels great, I know I can do it every time out," Wheeler said. "I know I have the stuff. It finally feels good to go out there and do it and be efficient with my pitches and get ahead of guys." New York, which won at St. Louis on Wednesday, has consecutive victories for the first time since a three-game streak from May 31-June 2. The Mets had dropped eight straight on the road before Wednesday. Wheeler, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft, struck out eight. He allowed three hits and one walk, and 70 of his 111 pitches were strikes. He pitched to only one batter over the minimum and was helped by three double plays. "Anytime somebody gets on, whether it be a walk or hit, you just try to make a pitch and get a double play. I was able to do that," Wheeler said. The 24-year old right-hander lowered his ERA to 0.96 in four starts against the Marlins. "He didnt miss over the plate much," Marlins catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said. "He was really good with locating his pitches off the plate. He threw a lot of fastballs, like we expected, but he didnt leave anything over the plate. "Youve got to tip your cap to a guy who pitched a great game." Heaney (0-1) gave up four hits in six innings, allowing only Wrights home run. The 23-year old lefty, the ninth pick in the 2012 draft, struck out three and walked one. "He did a nice job, gave us a chance and kept us in the game," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "He gave up one pitch to a really good hitter for a home run and that was it. He executed his pitches, got hiis pitch count up high early, but then settled in.dddddddddddd "All in all it was a good start for him." It was a battle between two young starters that could see a lot of each other in coming years in the NL East. "Thats what the game is coming to," Collins said. "The game is changing where those big power arms are coming up in every organization, and theyre all young." Heaney allowed an infield hit to Eric Young, Jr. to begin the game, but got Daniel Murphy to bounce into a double play. Wright then hit his sixth homer of the season off the sculpture in deep left-centre field. No one else got into scoring position against Heaney. "I had no expectations, to be honest," Heaney said. "I just wanted to pitch well. I felt early on I didnt know how it was going to go. It was kind of on the edge with every guy. From that fourth inning on I got into a rhythm." Bryan Morris relieved Heaney in the seventh and faced a bases loaded situation, but he got Wheeler to ground out and end the threat. Wheeler, who made his much-anticipated debut a year and a day before Heaney, complimented his mound opponent. "I sat on the bench in between innings and just watched him, knowing that I was there not too long ago and knowing how he felt," Wheeler said. "He has a good arm, and I think hes going to do well." Kevin Gregg pitched the ninth in his season debut with Miami. He earned 61 saves for the Marlins in 2007-08. Reed Johnson singled in the ninth off Wheeler with two outs, but Rafael Furcal lined out to centre to end the game. Wheeler threw a 95 mph fastball on his final pitch. "I still had plenty," Wheeler said. NOTES: Mets OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, and OF Matt den Dekker was optioned to Las Vegas. ...
