SHARKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The San Jose Sharks have found their starting goalie by acquiring Martin Jones

Don Sweeney has been justifiably getting killed online for the early returns of his first draft. He sold low on Dougie Hamilton and brought in prospects that were way off the board in the first round. He also locked up Adam McQuaid to a four-year deal and traded another solid asset in a third-round pick for Zac Rinaldo. All-in-all a tough week for the rookie GM. Well, Sweeney has...

Blues acquire Konrad Abeltshauser in a trade with San Jose

The Blues have traded a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for German defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser. The trade barely registers on the noteworthy meter and likely won’t factor in the team’s roster for 2015-16. Abeltshauser skated in 50 AHL games in 2014-15 with the Worcester Sharks. Over that time, he produced three goals...

Holy Cross hockey takes new role as Worcester’s only ticket

#ThisIsIt. This hashtag, created in advance of the Worcester Sharks’ 2015 playoff run, did not simply convey the necessity of lifting a Calder Cup banner to the rafters of the DCU Center.

Three Things Peter DeBoer Needs To Do As Head Coach In San Jose

The Sharks made their official announcement today naming Peter DeBoer as their new head coach. Now I obviously with any move there is often a split in the fan base of those who approve and those who do not. My personal take is that DeBoer got more out his teams than he should have on multiple occasions and while I can understand the hesitation based his NHL Record (217-200-77) but...

Future of San Jose Sharks

Well, the San Jose Sharks didn’t have the type of season a lot of fans hoped they’d of had. There was a little bit of a false omen going into the season, if you believe in that sort of thing.

Pavelski discusses Sharks' slipping attendance

Attendance has been a hot topic in San Jose. The Sharks have drawn an average of 17,385 fans through 29 home games and that’s a pretty respectable number compared to other teams in the NHL. That average checks in at the 18th spot so far in 2014-15, but the team has failed to post a capacity crowd in 15 of its 29 home games. The Sharks are actually averaging more fans this year...
