Only 11 men have had the honor of being the captain of the San Jose Sharks. These men have been considered as the leader of the team. Of these 11, eight have been forwards and three have been defensemen.
Two players who've worn the "C" for the Sharks are still involved with the organization. Mike Ricci has been the team's development coach since 2008. The other is Doug Wilson, who's been executive vice president and general manager since 2003.
