SHARKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joe Thornton’s lasting legacy with the San Jose Sharks

Joe Thornton began his career as a Boston Bruin when they took him first overall in 1997. He played there for eight seasons before being traded to the San Jose  Sharks in 2006. He is one of the few remaining players in the NHL that will remind you of good old time hockey. It could be the no shield look or the way he patrols the ice, but Joe brings a unique style that has been slowly...

Where Does Matt Nieto Fit in the Sharks 2016-17 Lineup?

Speedy winger Matt Nieto was selected by the Sharks in the second round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft  (47th overall), with many hoping that he would one day become a top-six scoring winger. Three years into his NHL career and the 23-year-old Nieto had what some could define as an up and down season in 2015-16. In October, Coach Pete DeBoer called out Nieto as his best forward and...

2016-17 Season Preview: San Jose Sharks

We should have saw this coming. After years of failing to meet expectations, the public wasn't expecting much from the Sharks in 2015-16 after missing the playoffs in 2014-15 and naturally made the Stanley Cup Finals. They are one of my favorite teams to watch for the absolutely loaded top 6 that they have while Brent Burns is making wild offensive rushes all game. There's a ton...

WASHINGTON (AP) Joe Pavelski isn't the United States' oldest player at the World Cup of Hockey, nor does he have the most skill, size, experience or even the best beard. He just has the ''C'' on his chest. Pavelski has only been an NHL captain for one season, but the leader of the San Jose Sharks was given the leadership role for the Americans at the World Cup, which begins Saturday...

The San Jose Sharks have their own beer with a not-so-appetizing name

Would you drink chum? If you know what chum is, you’re probably puking right now. But “chum” is the name of a new craft beer that is the product of Gordon Biersch’s Brewing company, and the NHL’s San Jose Sharks. It’s a dry hopped red ale, which represents the blood from the fish parts which attract sharks. And just as chum attracts real sharks, this chum will get the...

Oshie hits Couture head-first into the boards

We all knew that USA vs. Canada was going to be a rough and tumble affair regardless of the exhibition title. We saw it with the Ryan Kesler hit on Shea Weber and I am sure we will see it again during the actual tournament. A hit planted on Logan Couture by T.J. Oshie may have been the scariest of the evening as he went head-first into the boards. The angle presented in the...

It's never easy to come back after a crushing defeat.  Despite coming so close to winning it all, the San Jose Sharks will be forced to rebound in 2016-17.

Marshwn Lynch leads Sharks onto ice in 'Beast Mode' jersey

The San Jose Sharks hosted the first Stanley Cup Finals game in their franchise history on Saturday and there was a special guest in attendance. The Penguins won the first two games of the series, meaning the Sharks were facing a proverbial must-win in Game 3. With their backs up against the wall, San Jose certainly didn’t need any additional motivation to come out fired up. However...

Crosby of course won a faceoff that led to the winning goal...

Sure, it was anticipated before the puck dropped to open Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final that the San Jose Sharks would be challenged by the Pittsburgh Penguins’ speed. Or that the Pens would have to solve Team Teal’s beefed-up blue line and ability to turn its game up as 60 minutes tick on.But frankly, there probably aren’t too many people out there who expected the series...
