On Monday, Dec. 17, the San Jose Sharks and HP Pavilion at San Jose hosted an ECHL matchup between the San Francisco Bulls and the Stockton Thunder. As part of the event, fans were treated with complimentary tickets and encouraged to visit downtown San Jose businesses and donate to the Sharks Foundation Toys for Tots drive. At the end of the night, despite the "home" team losing 6-4, positive impact was made for San Jose business, the community, and hockey fans.

TRIVIA: How many fans attended the ECHL game at HP Pavilion?

This past Saturday, Comcast Sportsnet California provided a nostalgic hockey fix with the first of many Sharks Classic Games. It was a game from the second season. The Sharks beat the Kings 7-3 on Boxing Day 1992. It was the only win in a span of 34 games...Ouch...or Yea ... depending if you're a glass is half full or empty.

It got me thinking about the early days of the team when I was an Assistant Coach.

In fact, the last time Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and I spoke, we reminisced about the years and the team at the Cow Palace.

We may have lost a lot of games but I have nothing but fond memories about the great people that made up those teams. So I went back to the Sharks Inaugural Team roster and wanted to pass on some trivia and a few "where are they nows."

In that first year we had 45 players suit up for at least one game. That is an amazingly high number and pretty tough to develop continuity with 45 guys in and out of that line-up.

One of the aspects I'm most proud of us that many of those 45 players have gone on to prominent roles in hockey.

Our team is having a lot more fun now that we are winning compared to early in the season when we got off to a slow start. We began the month undefeated in regulation and it has helped us climb to the top of our division. Winning allows everyone to be more confident, energetic, and relaxed. It translates at practice, during games, and off the ice as well.

Either way, we always try to prepare the same way. Before each game, our coaches work hard to develop a game plan specific to the team we're playing. We watch video. We look at clips of their recent games and games that we played against them in the past. We go over their systems in each zone and their power play and penalty kill. We also look at their potential lineup and who their key players are.

Part of the ever talented Soviet National team throughout the 80's, Sergei Makarov broke in to the NHL at the age of 31. After a few seasons with the Calgary Flames, Makarov joined the Sharks and former Soviet linemate Igor Larionov in San Jose. Makarov registered 68 points in 80 games during his initial season in teal. He was also an influential member of the franchise's first-ever playoff team.

TRIVIA: How many points did Makarov register in the 1993-94 playoffs?

It’s Christmas time, the advent of the holiday season, and regardless of which traditions you and your family choose to celebrate, it’s a time of joy, wonder, reflection, and continued Thanksgiving.

On December 8th, we began with an opportunity to talk hockey with some enthusiastic fans at Stanley’s Sports Bar, located in Sharks Ice at San Jose, with the first of ten “game watching” events put on by the Sharks. With CSN-California tuned to all of the television sets, Jamie Baker and I had an enjoyable night talking hockey with the fans, posing for photos with the kids, and going back in history to December of 1992, when the Sharks ended a 13-game losing streak with a 57-save performance by Jeff Hackett and a 7-2 victory against the Los Angeles Kings.

This and That

  • The Worcester Sharks started the season 1-4-0-1 to start the season in their first 6 games. Since then the team 10-4-1 and have vaulted to 1st place in the Atlantic Division.

  • It’s clearly a different era in pro sports and it has to do with the year round training athletes do in their teenage and college (Junior) years. Take a look at the NFL and the early success of quarterbacks Andrew Luck of the Colts and Robert Griffin III of the Redskins. Quarterback might be the toughest position to transition into but these guys are having incredible rookie years.

With the news earlier this week that the ECHL’s San Francisco Bulls are coming to San Jose for a game on December 17, it seems like a good time to up our ECHL knowledge.

The 23-team ECHL (formerly known as the East Coast Hockey League, got its start in 1988 and is considered on the relative skill level as baseball’s Double A (AA), two rungs below major league.

Through the years the ECHL has 'graduated’ 490 players to the NHL. Presently 25 of 30 NHL teams have affiliation to an ECHL club. The Sharks affiliation is with the Bulls.
