Shark Life: Spreading Smiles

Tomas Hertl makes a young fan's day after Saturday's game

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Over the weekend, Sharks fans enjoyed a dominant 5-0 home win over the Ottawa Senators as five different Sharks scored and Aaron Dell earned his third career shutout. But one Sharks fan likely enjoyed the game more than most. 

Tomas Hertl - known for his perpetual smile and "fun must be always" attitude - spread smiles around on Saturday, and not just because he scored a goal in the game.

As the Sharks were coming off the ice after celebrating the dominating 5-0 win, fans crowded around the tunnel in hopes of getting a fist bump from some of their favorite players. The players delivered on that, but Hertl went one step further and gave his stick to a young fan.

Shark Life: The Whole Tooth, Nothing But the Tooth

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

When it comes to getting rid of a loose tooth there are many ways one can go about it- yank it out, the 'ole string and door trick, or just let the wiggle ride until the tooth falls out by itself.

This Sharks fan, however, was not settling for average and came up with a unique way to get rid of his loose tooth.

With one less tooth, he is one step closer to becoming a Sharks player.

Shark Life: Pawesome Night at the Tank

Marc-Edouard Vlasic was the guest of honor at the San Jose Barracuda's Pucks and Paws Night

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

On Sunday, the San Jose Barracuda - the AHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks - had a barking good time during their game against the San Diego Gulls. And this time, the barking was literal. It was the inaugural Pucks and Paws Night, a game dedicated to man's best friend. 

The Barracuda donned dog-inspired specialty jerseys, regaled fans with classic tunes such as "Who Let the Dogs Out?" (Who? Who? Who?), and - most importantly - allowed fans to bring their own pooches to the game.

Shark Life: A Shark Tank in a Shark Tank

With help from the TV show "Tanked" the Sharks added a shark tank to their arena

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

What happens when your arena is colloquially known as the Shark Tank? You put a shark tank in the Shark Tank.

This past summer, the San Jose Sharks decided to finally do what made an incredible amount of sense: add a shark tank to SAP Center, as part of the new BMW Lounge. And in order to make it, they enlisted the help of the Animal Planet TV show Tanked.

On November 10, the episode debuted, showing the process of creating the shark tank for the Shark Tank.

Shark Life: Can't Let It Go

Aaron Dell embraces the Frozen jokes with his mask

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Way back in 2013, Disney's movie Frozen hit theaters and became a cultural phenomenon. People everywhere were telling people to "Let It Go" and asking others "Do You Want To Build A Snowman?" 

Frozen, a movie about two princesses (one with magical ice powers), was set in the kingdom of Arendelle. Which, unfortunately for a current Sharks goalie, is pronounced exactly the same as Aaron Dell. 

What do you do when your name becomes part of one of the biggest pop culture touchstones? Lean into it.

Shark Life: Speed Painting

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

We feel the need. The need for speed… painting. 

Last month, SAP invited famous speed painter Vilas Nayak (you may have seen him on clips from Asia's Got Talent and Got Talent World Stage Live) to their campus for a few artistic performances, and one of the portraits is pretty familiar to Sharks fans.

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Sharks fans are not shy about showing off how much they love Team Teal. Hair, beards, tattoos - you name it, Sharks fans will rock team spirit with it.

But some of the more impressive displays of fandom come when fans decide to go all Xzibit and deck out their car in the iconic Sharks logo and teal. Like this fan and their sweet Sharks Jag.

Shark Life: Riding in Style

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

The San Jose Sharks embarked on their first road trip of the season heading to the East Coast. The first stop on the five game, ten day trip was New Jersey. After practice on Thursday at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey, Chris Tierney, Brenden Dillon and Barclay Goodrow crossed the Hudson River and took to the streets of New York City.

A sunny and 70-degree day seemed like the perfect opportunity to take in the sights of Central Park so that's what they did, but in style of course! The guys trotted through the park in a horse-drawn carriage.
