In 2015-16 the San Jose Sharks celebrated their 25th anniversary season. It was also the best season in franchise history, including the team's first-ever trip to the Stanley Cup Final. To commemorate, we're taking a look back at the 25 most memorable, funny, and best moments of the 25th anniversary.

On January 19, the San Jose Sharks hosted the 25th Anniversary Celebration, a glitzy affair honoring the Sharks' history and past and current members of the organization.

The day began with the release of the Sharks all-time roster, featuring the best players in franchise history at each position, as voted on by the fans.

The celebration itself started with a teal carpet, where the players, broadcasters, and front office got the celebrity treatment and went through a gauntlet of photographers.

The celebration itself was open to fans and VIPs alike, with presentations about the history of the team and the importance of the team in the community. Some of the featured speeches were by Dan Rusanowsky, General Manager Doug Wilson, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, owner Hasso Plattner, among others.

The speeches were interspersed with videos that explored five different aspects of the franchise: the city of San Jose, the beginning of the team, becoming Hockeytown 2.0, the players, and - of course - the fans.
