25th Year In Teal: All-Star Game

by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks

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.

The San Jose Sharks had two players selected to the NHL All Star Weekend: Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski. Burns was an All-Star veteran, having been the Sharks' lone representative the previous season, but it was Pavelski's first selection to the game.

To say that there were only two Sharks at the All Star Game would be disingenous; Burns and Pavelski took John Scott, Pacific captain and teammate during the 2014-15 season, under their wing the weekend, making him an honorary Shark.

There were two other big additions to the Sharks squad in the All Star Skills Competition: Nate Pavelski and Jagger Burns, the sons of Joe and Brent. The two tykes took Brent Burns's place in his first Breakaway Challenge attempt, scoring on a between-the-legs drop pass.

Burns's second attempt played on another side of him: his uncanny resemblance to Chewbacca from Star Wars.

During the 3-on-3 tournament the next day, the boys showed why the West is best. The lethal trio of Pavelski-Scott-Burns scored multiple times, including two from Scott.

The Pacific Division squad rolled through the 3-on-3 tournament, winning it all with major contributions from both Burns and Pavelski. And winning MVP of the All Star tournament, after winning through a write-in campaign, was John Scott.
