Prospect Spotlights: Radim Simek & Filip Sandberg

by Jonathan Wold / sjsharks.com

Over the past few years, the Sharks European scouts have been on something of a hot streak. The Sharks organization has been able to sign young free agents from overseas who have immediately made an impact. Last year brought Marcus Sorenesen & Tim Heed. Joonas Donskoi came the year prior, and Melker Karlsson signed back in 2014.

On Tuesday, the Sharks announced the signings of two more European prospects, Radim Simek and Filip Sandberg, hoping to make an impact sooner rather than later. 

San Jose added another puck-moving offensive defenseman in Radim Simek. The 24-year-old Czech has been a consistent goal scorer, putting up 10, 9, and 11 goals the past three seasons for HC Bílí Tygři Liberec of the Czech Extraliga.

Shark Life: The Big Barra-Gouda Cheese Debate

The San Jose Barracuda take to Twitter to settle a cheesy debate

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

Traveling on the road with the team means one thing- a lot of "bro time". Time to bond with the boys, find out interesting things about each other and get into debates over whether Wisconsin or Switzerland has the best cheese.

The San Jose Barracuda got into a heated cheese debate over dinner while in Grand Rapids for the Calder Cup Conference Finals. Barclay Goodrow tweeted out a Twitter Poll to settle the argument.

Tweet from @bgoodrow23: Need some help to settle a battle between the boys, which place has better cheese?!?!?

As Grosenick Takes His Game to New Heights, So Do Barracuda

by Missy Zielinski / sjsharks.com

With an opportunity to advance to the Western Conference Finals of the Calder Cup Playoffs for the first time in franchise history, San Jose Barracuda netminder Troy Grosenick calmly and methodically collected a 2-0 shutout in Game 5 against the San Diego Gulls.

The series-clinching win was reminiscent of his NHL debut, a 45-save shutout in an identical 2-0 victory versus the Carolina Hurricanes on November 16, 2014, becoming the first Sharks goaltender to record a shutout in his NHL debut.

However between those two milestones, a barrage of injuries and setbacks caused Grosenick to completely rethink his game.

Not Quite Top 10 Moments of 2016-17: Turn Up In Mohawks

The San Jose Sharks rocked a new hair style to spice up their playoff mojo

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

After a close Game 3 loss at home against the Edmonton Oilers, the San Jose Sharks were ready to shake things up for Game 4 and even the series back up again. 

Usually to shake things up one might alter their pregame routine, listen to a new playlist, or wear a different tie but, that wasn't the case for the Sharks.

Instead, Captain Joe Pavelski, Chris Tierney, Micheal Haley, and Marcus Sorensen showed up on the scene for Game 4 with a fresh new hair cut. A mohawk, that is.

Power Rankings: Sharks First Pitches

by Ann Frazier, Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

To be chosen for a first pitch at a baseball game is usually a nice honor; the person is being recognized in front of thousands of fans. But that comes as a double-edged sword: it also means that the person must show off their ball-throwing skills in front of thousands of fans, who will immediately judge them on that first pitch.

In honor of Owen Nolan and S.J. Sharkie's first pitches at the May 18 Oakland A's game, we decided to judge first pitches thrown by members of the San Jose Sharks.

Top 10 Moments of 2016-17: "We Want Seven!"

The San Jose Sharks set multiple franchise records with a 7-0 playoff win

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

After being shutout in games 2 and 3 against the Edmonton Oilers, it seemed as though the Sharks were due for a breakout on offense. It wouldn't have been surprising for the Sharks to score three or four goals in the next game.

But seven? 

The Sharks wasted zero time getting on the board. Well, okay, they technically wasted 15 seconds. Either way, fans who thought they could miss the first 30 seconds of the game missed out on a new Sharks playoff record.
