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.
Patrick Marleau is the longest-tenured player in San Jose Sharks history, suiting up in over 1,400 regular season games, all for the Sharks. Marleau was drafted by the team in 1997 second overall (coincidentally after current teammate Joe Thornton).
For 18 seasons, Marleau has been one of the faces of the franchise, holding team records in most every offensive category. As the seasons went by, Marleau got closer and closer to reaching the 1,000 point mark, which would be the first time anyone on the San Jose Sharks would score 1,000 points with the team.
On November 21 in Pittsburgh, Marleau scored his 1,000th point by assisting on Brent Burns's first goal of the game. The team went on to win the game 3-1.
Interestingly, Pittsburgh was the city in which Patrick Marleau was drafted.
