Wallin
Have a question for the newest member of the San Jose Sharks, Niclas Wallin? Now you’ll get your chance to ask it.


Wallin will be the next player featured on "Ask the Sharks." E-mail your question for the 34-year-old to askthesharks@sjsharks.com and the top ten questions will be chosen for an interview with the 6-foot-3, 220 pound defenseman.

The leftie from Boden, Sweden was acquired by San Jose along with a 5th round pick in 2010 from Carolina in exchange for a 2nd round pick in 2010 (from BUF) on Feb. 7. A day after his trade, Wallin joined the Sharks in Toronto and registered 12:10 minutes of ice time and was a +1 in San Jose’s 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Over his nine-year NHL career, Wallin has been to the Stanley Cup Finals twice and took home hockey’s Holy Grail with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. He’s also developed a reputation for scoring overtime goals in the postseason. All three of his career postseason goals came in OT, and he even "blessed" defenseman Tim Gleason's stick before Gleason's OT game-winner in Game 2 of last year's first-round series with New Jersey.
