After over a decade of hockey in the Soviet League, Igor Larionov took his game to North America and added nearly 1,000 NHL games to his career. He spent 97 of those games with the San Jose Sharks and although not nearly his longest tenure with a single NHL club, Larionov's time in San Jose made an immediate impact on the franchise. The man known as "The Professor" assisted in the team's 59 point turnaround in his first season, leading the Sharks to their first-ever playoff berth. Larionov was also part of another franchise first when the Russian native became the first former Sharks player to be inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

It was December 29, 1988, I was a senior at St. Lawrence University and we were one period from improving to 13-0-0 on the season. We were playing at home, in one of the great barns in the country, Appleton Arena. We defeated Western Michigan the night before and were leading 6-2 heading into the third period. We were ranked No. 1 in the country and would be keeping that ranking after the weekend sweep.

On the first shift of the third period there was a scoring chance and their goalie covered the puck. I turned away after the whistle, when Mike Posma, a player from Western Michigan, decided to slew foot me from behind. My right leg went up in the air as I fell but the toe of my blade on my left skate caught the ice and when I fell I landed on my ankle. The moments that followed are hazy because I was in so much pain.

After the game my coach Joe Marsh came in to the training room to find out what happened and how I was doing. He got the news; I broke my ankle and I was likely done for the season. He was so mad he punched a towel dispenser in the coach’s bathroom.

The next morning he drove me to the hospital to get x-rays. I got my leg and ankle and he got his right hand x-rayed. The news wasn’t good! His hand was broken and he was going to need some type of cast to immobilize it.

My news was worse. The doctor said he had good and bad news and asked what I wanted to hear first. I said the good news to which the doctor replied, “This shouldn’t be a career-ending injury.” That was the good news!

The bad news was I broke my fibula and tore ligaments in my ankle that required season-ending surgery. So I had just played my last game at St. Lawrence and as the Co-Captain. I was going to be a passenger on the top team in the country.

Arturs Irbe was drafted in the 10th round of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota North Stars. His first NHL team was the San Jose Sharks, where he played 5 seasons. In 1993-94 Irbe played a then-NHL record of 4412 minutes and led the Sharks to the biggest turnaround in NHL history, finishing with a 33-35-16 record, making the playoffs and earning himself Player of the Year. Irbe, known as “The Wall,” became the first Sharks goalie to be named to the NHL All-Star Game in 1994 and the first Sharks player to be inducted into the San Jose Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.

Like most of us who work for the Sharks, I’m asked every day what I think of the NHL labor negotiation and when I think the season will start. The fact is that none of us who are employed by the team are allowed to discuss the issue, per League rules.

People are also interested in what the broadcasters are doing to pass the time. We’ve actually been quite active. Here’s some of what’s been on my plate in October:

The First Tee of the Tri-Valley Backyard BBQ
Barone's Restaurant - Pleasanton, CA

The First Tee of the Tri-Valley was formed seven years ago by a group of golf professionals and local business leaders. The purpose of the charity is to make golfing more accessible and affordable throughout the Tri-Valley and the greater Alameda County area for children ages 7-17.

But along with learning how to play , the children are also exposed to virtues such as honor, patience and fair play, lessons that will be valuable beyond the golf course. Golf professionals Dana Jetter and Todd Fisher along with many others work tirelessly to grow the game and their organization. There’s also a hockey connection. The First Tee of the Tri-Valley’s executive director is Dan McKegney, son of former NHLer Tony McKegney.

My apologies to my Partner the Great Randy Hahn and his great sense of smell, but I am stealing his idea for part of my broadcaster blog.

We were sitting around talking to our Boss, Sharks VP of Everything (I think that’s his official title) after the Sharks held the first ever Halloween Skate at HP Pavilion. It was a terrific night, and that is when I stole his idea for this blog.
Management, Coaches and Broadcasters were stationed at different vantage points throughout the “Shark Tank” and we were able to meet the fans in attendance.

Given it was the first event of its kind, we didn’t know what to expect...

I was really excited to play my first regular season game for the Sharks. Although we didn't pull out a win, it was fun to finally play a game that meant something for the team and against a team's real lineup. We came pretty close on Saturday night, but fell in a heartbreaking shootout loss.

Just before our first game, the coaches decided on the captains with the help of a team vote. We were told of the decisions in Norfolk at a pregame skate. Congratulations to John McCarthy and the guys. From the short time I've been here J Mac and the other captains seem like great leaders.

Jeff Friesen arrived in San Jose after the Sharks selected the Saskatchewan native with their first choice in the 1994 draft. Friesen found himself on the ice immediately for the Sharks. He skated in 48 games his rookie season, producing 25 points and was named to the NHL All-Rookie team. Friesen would skate on to another six seasons with the Sharks before a trade moved the winger south to Anaheim. Friesen played 14 seasons in the NHL, eclipsing 500 points and nearly 500 penalty minutes.
