Tuesday Trivia is a weekly feature of the Daily Chomp. Answer this week's question, then check back next week for a new question and prize.

The role of backup goaltender can be as tough of job as they come in the NHL. At any moment, their number can be called, requiring a high level of play after coming in cold off the bench. Assuming that backup role in 2011-12, Thomas Greiss played 19 games collecting 9 wins for the Sharks. Some of Greiss' relief efforts were quite stellar, notably a 29 save performance against Pittsburgh on November 3 to get a shootout victory. Greiss also showed off some late game heroics later in the season when he won the first game in Sharks history by a goalie who entered the game in the third period or later when trailing.

Douglas Murray brings an unquestionable presence to the Sharks blueline. The 6-3, 240 pound native of Sweden has layed out some of the heaviest, bone crushing hits throughout his seven years in San Jose. This past season was no different as Murray paced the Sharks with 126 hits. Murray also set a Sharks franchise record for most hits registered in a single regular season game, with 10.

Tuesday Trivia is a weekly feature of the Daily Chomp. Check back next week for a new question and prize.

The value of a Marty Havlat in the lineup for the Sharks cannot be undervalued. In 2011-12, the dynamic playmaker missed 39 straight games after suffering a lower body injury on Dec. 21. While Havlat recovered on the Injured Reserve, the Sharks suffered their worst team performance of the season. Contrastingly, when having a healthy Havlat in the lineup, the Sharks were 25-11-3. Havlat also stole the show in a couple of key games for San Jose after returning from injury, including his two-goal performance in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Quarterfinals versus St. Louis. The veteran winger also tied a franchise record during his first season in teal when he recorded at least one assist in each of his first four games with the Sharks.

Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic has steadily put together a consistently good start to his career. The man nicknamed "Pickles" will begin his seventh season in teal, fresh after signing a five-year extension to his current contract. Vlasic can consider it a reward for having, perhaps, his best season along the Sharks blueline just last year. Most notably in 2011-12, the defensive defenseman led his team in blocked shots and finished 12th in the league in the same category.
