Sharks' Sheppard gets chance to build on strong '14 finish

It took a few years, but the Sharks were finally rewarded for their patience and belief in James Sheppard late last season. The former first round pick (ninth overall), whose career nearly ended in the 2010 offseason due to an ATV accident, showed that he still has the skills to play regularly at the NHL level when he was plopped in the middle of the Sharks' third line shortly...

Armchair GM Part 1: Re-signing free agents

Over the next while, I thought it would be interesting to become the "armchair GM" for my posts, and give my input as to what I would do for the Sharks over the summer. For part 1, I will be looking at the free agents on the Sharks roster, and whom to re-sign. But first as a side note, Logan Couture has been named amongst 8 players eligible to be on the cover of NHL 15...

Back at square one

After the Sharks looked like Cup contenders in the first three games, they have fallen back to Earth and squandered a 3-0 series lead. It was another infuriating performance on Monday night, and they will have to win game 7 unless they want to be part of history in an embarrassing way. Only 8 teams have ever gone to game 7 after being down 3-0, but luckily for the Sharks, the team...

Complete domination

  One word I have for tonight's game against the Kings: Wow. The Sharks completely and utterly dominated the Kings for the first two periods, and were leading 5-0 until early into the third. It was a successful result in all facets of the game, and only a late scare was a bit discouraging for the team. Trevor Lewis scored with 6:01 left in the game to make it 5-3, and there...

Sharks show depth, character in win over Isles

Yes, the New York Islanders are buried in last place in the Metropolitan Division. And, yes, a case can be made that after their selloff at the trade deadline and with star center John Tavares out for the rest of the season, they are the worst team in the league on paper. Still, the Sharks had their work cut out for them Friday night, and not just because the Islanders are playing...

During game one of the Vancouver Canucks-San Jose Sharks playoff series Canucks forward Andrew Ebbett chipped a puck in deep from the neutral zone when Sharks forward James Sheppard came in and hit him into the Sharks bench.  Sheppard added insult to injury by trying to flip him completely into the bench and sort of hold him there, which Ebbett took exception to and a scrum ensued...

Even Steven, don’t wait for Nate

The Sharks recalled Matt Pelech again, and placed James Sheppard on IR.  That last is based on the Sharks' online roster, which I'm not sure I can rely on.  Tim Kennedy has gone missing from that same roster, but maybe he wasn't there to begin with.  I haven't been checking closely.  I only checked today to find out why they needed  Pelech again.  Kennedy isn...

That trio fueled the team’s impressive 7-0-1 start.With opponents focused on the Thornton line, McLellan would like his No...
