How the Sharks Were Named

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet... But a hockey team with the wrong name wouldn't be quite as cool. Especially if the team name isn't "Sharks."

When San Jose was awarded an expansion NHL franchise in 1990, the team held a national sweepstakes to help give a name to the new expansion franchise, and hockey fans did not disappoint. In an age before the ease of online submissions, people sent in over 5,700 entries to try to put their own stamp on a professional sports franchise. Even more impressive, the name suggestions did not just come from the Bay Area; there were submissions from Manitoba, Maine, Florida, and even Italy.
