Throwback Thursday - 8\/2\/2012

To celebrate Sharks history, each week we will highlight moments of the past. So check back to the Daily Chomp each week to celebrate with us for Throwback Thursday. In addition, we will be giving away special Sharks throwback items every Thursday.

This week the Daily Chomp takes a look at the Sharks 2003-04 season.

  • The Sharks set records in road points (47), shutouts (11) and most wins in a calendar month (10 — March).
  • G Evgeni Nabokov set a franchise record with nine shutouts.
  • LW Nils Ekman set a franchise record by compiling a plus-30 plus/minus rating for the season
  • RW Jonathan Cheechoo set a franchise record with nine game-winning goals on the season.
  • D Brad Stuart scored two goals in the last 17 seconds of regulation on April 4, 2003 vs. Los Angeles.
