Former San Jose Sharks Captain Owen Nolan has been selected as part of the 2014 induction class to the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame.

SAN JOSE, CA – Former San Jose Sharks Captain Owen Nolan (@OwenNolan11) has been selected as part of the 2014 induction class to the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame (BASHOF), according to an announcement from BASHOF Chairman Tom Martz and President/CEO Kevin O’Brien.

Nolan will be honored at the annual Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame Enshrinement Banquet on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco, CA. The rest of the 2014 BASHOF class includes former Olympic track star Jim Hines, former De La Salle High School coach Bob Ladouceur, former Oakland A’s Manager Tony La Russa, and former San Francisco Giants owner Bob Lurie.

Regarded as one of the game’s purest power forwards, Nolan played in 1,200 NHL games with Quebec/Colorado, San Jose, Toronto, Phoenix, Calgary and Minnesota during his 18-year career and posted 885 points (422 goals, 463 assists). Nolan appeared in 65 Stanley Cup Playoff games with Quebec, San Jose, Toronto and Calgary, collecting 40 points (21 goals, 19 assists).

The Belfast, Ireland native currently ranks second on the Sharks franchise all-time scoring list in goals (206), power play goals (75), and penalty minutes (934), T-second in shorthanded goals (14), third in points (451) and assists (245), fifth in games played (568), and T-sixth in game-winning goals (25).

A five-time NHL All-Star (1992 with Quebec, 1996, 1997, 2000 and 2002 with San Jose), Nolan provided one of the NHL’s most unforgettable All-Star memories at the 1997 contest in San Jose. Carrying the puck in alone on Eastern Conference goaltender Dominik Hasek, Nolan “called his shot,” pointing to the top-right corner of the net and then buried it there for his third goal of the game.

In 2002, he was one of the first eight players named to the men’s Canadian Olympic hockey team, which would go on to win the gold medal at the Salt Lake City Winter Games. He also won a gold medal for Canada at the 1997 World Championships, held in Helsinki.

The Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that began in 1979 with the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce’s Sports Committee and Lou Spadia, former president of the San Francisco 49ers. Now in its 35th year and adhering to its goal of honoring local athletic legends in the name of benefiting youth sports, BASHOF has donated close to $4 million to youth sports programs in the Bay Area to over 600 youth organizations in the Bay Area.
