Sharks Movember Rankings

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Every year, the month of November is marked by the growth of mustaches around the league to celebrate Movember and raise awareness of men's health issues.

The San Jose Sharks, a team not known to shy away from facial hair, joined in on the mustache growing. Though most of the players simply rocked the full beards - some fuller than others - there were seven Sharks who decided to rock the mustaches for Movember.

1. Dylan DeMelo

This is a 'stache you can see from the nosebleeds. Strong, full, and a moustache that deserves to be at the top of the rankings.

2. Joonas Donskoi

Very solid, full mustache. No complaints.

2016 NHL Draft: Noah Gregor

2016 NHL Draft: Noah Gregor

Meet the San Jose Sharks' 3rd-round draft pick, Noah Gregor

  • 01:50 •

Over the past couple weeks, no Sharks prospect has been hotter than forward Noah Gregor. Gregor has piled up 10 points in his last 5 game (3 goals, 7 assists), and is currently above a point-per-game pace for the Moose Jaw Warriors in the Western Hockey League.

"I'm an offensive minded guy," Gregor said after the NHL Entry Draft. "I have pretty good speed and like to make plays in the offensive zone. But I'm a reliable guy and like to work hard every shift."

Gregor burst onto the scene last season after missing the majority of the prior season with a collarbone injury. As a rookie in the WHL last year, Gregor put up 28 goals and 45 assists for a total of 73 points in 72 games played. That scoring touch made him the runner up for WHL Rookie of the Year.

What Makes 88 Great

by Nicole Grazioli / sjsharks.com

On November 23, the Sharks signed defenseman Brent Burns to a eight-year contract extension. Get ready to see that glorious beard and toothless grin for many years to come! To celebrate this big moment in Sharks history, lets take a look at some of the things that make Burnzie great.

1) 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

There is no doubt that Brent Burns' participation in the Breakaway Challenge in the 2016 NHL All-Star Skills Competition was one of the most memorable moments in all of NHL All-Star history. 

First off, he embraced his look-a-like comparison and wore a Chewbacca mask.

Next, he made the All-Star weekend a family affair. Jagger and Nate joined their dads out on the ice for one of the cutest hockey moments that made your heart melt.

No Shortage of Milestones

It was a Memorable Night Against the Devils

Couture roofs power-play goal

On the scoresheet, the Sharks won 4-0 against the New Jersey Devils on Monday, November 21. But the game provided much more than just a (very fun) shutout win. It also made for a very memorable night for a number of Sharks players.

The game would have been a memorable one regardless of the score. Forward Danny O'Regan played in his first NHL game, after being called up from the San Jose Barracuda earlier that morning. O'Regan, a Boston University product, is in his first season as a professional after being drafted in 2012.

But the milestones did not stop there. Early in the first period, Patrick Marleau picked up his own rebound to score the second goal of the game. It was his 486th career goal, which makes him 48th all-time in goals. All 486 have been scored with the Sharks.
