MacGregor Donald Bartley Sharp (born October 1, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who is currently with the Vienna Capitals of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL). He has previously played in the National Hockey League (NHL) for the Anaheim Ducks.

Playing career[edit]

On March 31, 2009, Sharp signed a two-year, entry level contract with the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1]

Sharp became the first skater to jump from the ECHL to the National Hockey League (NHL) in the same season without first stopping in the American Hockey League (AHL), playing 15 games with the Bakersfield Condors earning 4 goals, and 10 assists. He played 8 games with the Anaheim Ducks going scoreless, before he was assigned to the San Antonio Rampage.

On February 28, 2011, Sharp was traded along with Maxim Lapierre to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for Joel Perrault and a third round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.[2]

On August 2, 2011, Sharp left North America and agreed to a contract with HC Bolzano of the then Italian Serie A. After two seasons amongst the Foxes top scorers, Sharp remained with the club as they transferred leagues into the Austrian Hockey League for a higher level of competitiveness.

On May 30, 2014, Sharp changed European leagues, agreeing to a one-year deal with Schwenninger Wild Wings of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. In the 2014–15 season, Sharp struggled offensively with just 6 goals and 14 points in 47 games. He was not tendered a new contract upon Schwenninger failing to qualify for the post-season.[3]

On April 15, 2015, Sharp opted to return in hope of further success in Austrian EBEL, signing a one-year deal with the Vienna Capitals.[4]
