by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks
The San Jose Sharks announced today that defenseman Craig Rivet has been selected as the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Month” for the month of January. The award will be presented to him prior to today’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Rivet led all team defensemen with nine points (three goals, six assists) in 12 games during the month. He also added 12 penalty minutes, including a fight with Dallas’ Trevor Daley and was +2.

This marks the first time that Rivet has received the award.

Established in the 1996-97 season, the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Month” program honors the Sharks player(s) who have contributed most to the team’s success each month. Seagate Technology will donate $2,500 on behalf of the player(s) to The Sharks Foundation. In addition, one player will be selected as the Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Year” at the conclusion of the season and Seagate Technology will donate $5,000 on his behalf to The Sharks Foundation. Seagate Technology has donated more than $260,000 to The Sharks Foundation since the program's inception.

“Seagate has made social responsibility one of the values that forms the foundation of our business and we take pride in the thousands of Seagate employees who convert our social responsibility beliefs into action,” said Bill Watkins, CEO, Seagate Technology. “The more than 2,000 Bay Area employees of Seagate understand and appreciate the commitment of like-minded organizations such as The Sharks Foundation, whose programming platform touches lives throughout Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties.
