Round: 2nd (29th overall)
Born in Terrace, British Columbia on July 28th 1967 Jeff Sharples earned a reputation as a skilled offensive defenseman in Junior hockey and was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in 1985. Sharples last year of Junior was the same year he made his NHL debut, playing three games with the Wings during the 1986-87 campaign.

Sharples notched one assist in his three game stint and also suited up for two playoff games. It was the next season, however, that Sharples delivered on his offensive promise. In 56 games he scored 10 goals and 35 points while posting a +13 plus/minus rating. Sharples' production dipped substantially the following year when he had just four goals and 13 points in 46 games. He spent 10 games in the American Hockey League that season and began the next campaign there as well.

On November 2nd, 1989 Sharples was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in a blockbuster trade that sent Jimmy Carson and Kevin McClelland to Motown. Off to Edmonton were Petr Klima, Joe Murphy and Adam Graves, all of whom played a big part in the Oilers Stanley Cup championship that spring. Sharples, however, only spent four months in the Oilers organization, and all of it was in the minors. Sharples was traded in early March of 1990 in exchange for veteran blueliner Reijo Ruotsalainen.

With the Devils organization Sharples again was unable to return to the National Hockey League level spending all of his time in the AHL.

In 1992 Sharples took his act to the International Hockey League signing on with the Kansas City Blades. The following year he moved on to the Las Vegas Thunder where he spent two productive years providing points from the blue line. Midway through the 1995-96 season Sharples was dealt to the Utah Grizzlies where he played four and half years then retired in September of 2000.
