BOG Meetings
When the NHL season opens up for the 2010-11 campaign overseas, there is a very real chance the San Jose Sharks will be taking part in the festivities. The NHL Board of Governors recently concluded their most recent meetings in Pebble Beach and Sharks President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Jamison acknowledged the possibility.

“We have been invited to go and we’re in the process of discussing it,” said Jamison. “We’re optimistic we might do it.”

If it happens, where exactly they would go is still up for debate.

“Probably a Scandinavian country or western Europe,” said Jamison.

There are always concerns about adding such a trip to the schedule, but it must be noted the defending Stanley Cup Champion made the trek last year. Plus the NHL is very cognizant of the extra tear on a club making the excursion for the betterment of the league.

“We would have three preseason games here, three on the road and one in Europe,” said Jamison of the scenario if it happened. There would be a couple of days rest before the first European game and then proper rest surrounding games upon returning to the United States.

If the Sharks were to end up making the trip, there opponent would still need to be determined.

HEADSHOTS
The issue of dangerous shots to the head has come up again with the NHL’s high ranking officers and it is an area of deep concern for everyone.

“We’ve talked about concussions and about what can be done to make sure we’re doing the right things for our players,” said Jamison.

CONVENIENT
The central California location for the meetings allowed Jamison to have an easy trip instead of flying across the country.

“I got to get in the car and drive,” said Jamison.

ABOUT READY
Dan Boyle returned to practice and again confirmed his plan to skate on Thursday.

“I should be playing,” said Boyle.

TOUGHNESS
Sharks Head Coach Todd McLellan noted the club was awaiting afternoon tests to know whether Brad Staubitz or Jody Shelley would be ready to return this week.

RESTED
The Sharks will be playing following four days of rest and Anaheim will be playing their second game is as many nights as they play Vancouver on Wednesday.

NEXT GAME
The Sharks will host Anaheim Thursday night and tickets are available at the HP Pavilion Ticket Office and at www.ticketmaster.com. The contest will be on CSN California, 98.5 KFOX and sjharks.com.
