The San Jose Sharks made their final cuts to their NHL roster today as they assigned Nikolay Goldobin, Mirco Mueller and Melker Karlsson to the San Jose Barracuda of the American Hockey League.  The only player that surprised me in this list is Melker Karlsson, but upon further reflection I’m not really shocked by this turn of events as he missed the entire training camp with...

San Jose Sharks are ditching “Rock and Roll, Part 2″ as their goal song

The San Jose Sharks have been criticized for continuing to use “Rock and Roll, Part 2″ by Gary Glitter after Glitter was sentenced to a 16-year prison term in the UK for sex crimes against children back in the 1970s.

San Jose Sharks poised for a postseason return

A common San Jose Sharks’ trend of exceptional regular seasons followed by heartbreaking losses in the playoffs would continue in the 2013-2014 season when they blew a 3-0 series lead to the Los Angeles Kings, which put the icing on the cake in a decade of disappointment. Last season, San Jose never seemed to bounce back from their monumental postseason collapse, as they were left...

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...
