'The Shark' revealed as 12th NHL Guardian
The Shark

(Click image to enlarge)

"The Shark" is a contrarian. Normally he exhibits a low-key almost passive nature choosing to avoid conflict. Of all the Guardians, he is the least likely to be the lightening rod for any particular mission or cause. However, the Shark can change his demeanor at a moment's notice and exhibit a more tenacious side. At these moments he cares only about his objective.

Since San Jose is the capital of Silicon Valley, the Shark is the Guardian's resident computer "geek" and a technopath who can mentally interface with any type of computer data or software. The Shark is a massive humanoid looking character with the sleek skin of a Great White, the head of a shark complete with rows of jagged teeth and like actual sharks, poor eyesight (in fact he's almost blind). As a result, his other senses, especially smell and touch, have been heightened to superhuman levels.



Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
