Sharks call meeting in lieu of practice

Wednesday, 03.18.2009 / 10:41 PM / News
Instead of a full practice at HP Pavilion on Wednesday, the Sharks met for 90 minutes in the locker room. The extended session included the entire hockey department from Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson to the coaches, players and staff.

Following the meeting, a few players took to the ice for an optional skate. The Tuesday night 4-3 loss in Phoenix wasn’t the entire reason for the gathering, but it was likely the impetus for the session.

"It wasn't a direct result (of Phoenix)," head coach Todd McLellan said. "It was going to happen. If it was a 4-3 win, we probably still would've had the meeting. It's a meeting that needed to happen and teams have them at this time of the year."

The on ice production was the primary force behind the closed door session as San Jose is just 4-6-1 in their last 11 contests.

"We haven't played like we'd like to," center Joe Pavelski said.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
