Throwback Thursday - 5\/24\/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 1993-94 season.

Did you know... the Sharks first playoff appearance came in 1993-94 where San Jose upset top-seeded Detroit in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

More from that year:
  • Sharks finished 33-35-16 (82 points) and make first playoff appearance in club history. This marked the greatest single-season turnaround in NHL history — 58 points better than 1992-93’s output of 24 points (11-71-2).
  • G Arturs Irbe and D Sandis Ozolinsh participated in the NHL All-Star Game at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
