Great White Bites

I have been sequestered into digital silence because I broke my computer. Broke being a euphemism for completely wiping out the hard drive. In the age of computer notebooks, tablets and smart phones, I'm getting dumber.

Now for my GWB.

The Sharks gave up another first goal of a career recently. It is fifth first the Sharks have given up this season. In fact 81 players scored the first goal of their career vs the Sharks.

I tossed that number at Joe Thornton the other day and he asked which player of the 81 had gone on to score the most goals in his career.

Great question, far too good for me to answer, so enter The great Darin Stephens our graphics and stats man from Comcast SportsNet.

The top five goal scorers who tallied their first vs the Sharks are:

  • Teemu Selanne-670 (and counting)
  • Jason Arnott-419
  • Tomas Holmstrom-243
  • JP Dumont-214
  • Valeri Kamensky-200

It is a freak stat to be sure but interesting nonetheless.
