Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

It's a Sharks gameday again, as the Sharks play their second half of the back-to-back and third game in four days. People who love hockey love this week, with five games in seven days for Team Teal. 

The Sharks are coming off a satisfying 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Kings to close out their season series, winning three games to one. Chris Tierney, Barclay Goodrow, Mikkel Boedker, and Joe Thornton all scored (the latter on an empty net), while Martin Jones continued his dominance against his former club.

After a thrilling 6-5 overtime win on Saturday that saw Joonas Donskoi put on a show, the Sharks are once again facing the Desert Dogs, this time on road ice. Both Martin Jones and Aaron Dell played in that game, but it looks like Aaron Dell getting the call tonight with Jones playing yesterday.

Sharks play-by-play announcer is scheduled to hit the milestone Jan. 16 in Arizona

by San Jose Sharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) Radio Play-By-Play Announcer Dan Rusanowsky (@DanRusanowsky) is on the verge of calling his 2,000th regular season NHL broadcast. He is scheduled to hit the historic milestone tomorrow, Tues., Jan. 16 at Arizona.

In addition, today's game at Los Angeles will be his 1,000th regular season road game.

Rusanowsky has called every regular season and Stanley Cup Playoff game in Sharks franchise history, minus 27 regular season games he missed during the 2000-2001 season due to injuries from an auto accident.

He will be recognized at SAP Center during the Jan. 23 Sharks game against the Winnipeg Jets.

"It's likely that no one is more closely associated with the San Jose Sharks than Dan Rusanowsky," said Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson. "Dan has always been the team's greatest ambassador and he has deftly described Sharks hockey over the airwaves for generations of Sharks fans. We're extremely lucky to have him as the "Voice of the Sharks" and we congratulate him on this monumental milestone."

Welcome to the Gameday Blog, the one-stop shop for San Jose Sharks fans on every gameday. This blog will be updated throughout the day with news, lineup information, videos, and tweets, so be sure to check back as the day goes on.

The San Jose Sharks are back on the road for a three-game road trip facing the Los Angeles Kings tonight at the Staples Center. This will be the Sharks fourth meeting against the Kings and lead the season series 2-1.

The Sharks are coming off a 6-5 overtime win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night. It was just one of four games the Sharks will play on home ice this month. This means that road ice advantage will play a big role in the Sharks playoff race. The Los Angeles Kings are currently third in the Pacific with 53 points while the Sharks are ranked fourth in the division with 50 points.

Last game, the Sharks came out the gates hot scoring three goals in the first 13 minutes of play. Unfortunately the Coyotes did the same. Aaron Dell was called into the game after the first three goals against. Joonas Donskoi had a spectacular game scoring two goals and registering an assist. He also earned first star and scored the equalizer with just 14 seconds remaining in the third period to send the Sharks to overtime. With a goal and two assists, Joe Thornton passed Adan Oates to be alone at 17th all-time in points.

In recent transactions, the Sharks loaned Marcus Sorensen to the San Jose Barracuda and activated Dylan DeMelo from Injured Reserve.

Dell Records First Career Point

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

It's not everyday that a goaltender gets to notch a point in his belt. On Saturday, January 13th, against the Arizona Coyotes, Aaron Dell registered his first career point. 

The Sharks were tied 3-3 with just over three minutes left in the second period when Joonas Donskoi was denied at the net by Coyotes goaltender Scott Wedgewood. The Coyotes regained possession of the puck and chipped it into the Sharks zone.

Aaron Dell gathered the puck behind his net, looked for an open teammate and passed to Mikkel Boedker. Boedker took the puck up the ice and passed it to Donskoi who made a magician like play over Wedgewood for sweet revenge, giving the Sharks a 4-3 lead.

When asked about the play postgame Aaron Dell, oh so humbly said, "Boeds was open. I mean, he made the nice pass, I just gave it to the open guy and [Donskoi] put it in like he does."

After coming into the game midway through the first period, Aaron Dell was able to make his presence known, both defensively and well, offensively too!

Burns Named Sharks Foundation "Player of the Month" for December

The Defenseman Earns the Honor for the Seventh Time

by San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE - The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) announced today that defenseman Brent Burns (@burnzie88) has been selected as the Sharks Foundation (@SharksCare) "Sharks Player of the Month" for December.

Burns finished the month of December with 14 points (5 goals, 9 assists) and led San Jose in scoring, goals (tied) and assists (tied) during the final month of 2017. His 14 points paced all League blueliners and his 53 shots on goal during the month ranked fifth amongst all NHL skaters.

The Barrie, Ontario, native was named to the 2018 Honda NHL All-Star Game, his fourth consecutive NHL All-Star nod, and his fifth overall. Burns currently paces all NHL defensemen, and leads all Sharks skaters, in both shots on goal (172) and takeaways (42), and since Nov. 22, he leads all NHL rearguards in points (23 in 21 games).

Established in the 1996-97 season, the Sharks Foundation "Sharks Player of the Month" program honors the Sharks player(s) who have contributed most to the team's success each month. The Sharks Player of the Month and Year award program has donated more than $300,000 to the Sharks Foundation since the program's inception.

This is the seventh player of the month recognition for Burns.

Hockey is back! After five days off, the Sharks are finally back in action as they host the Arizona Coyotes. And it's not just that hockey is back - it also happens to be Warriors Night presented by Zoom, meaning that there's a little basketball flavor to the hockey game.

If could manage to remember the last time the team has played (no worries if you can't - it has been a while), the Sharks dropped a disappointing game 4-1 to the Winnipeg Jets to wrap up the road trip that started 2018 for the team. The Sharks were within 2-1 near the end of the second, but a goal late in the second and an empty-netter in the third sealed it for the Jets.

The Sharks are hoping that the five days off - and the mini-vacations many of the players took - will help get the team back on track after a mildly disappointing road trip. They get their chance to start the home portion of 2018 against the Pacific Division rival Arizona Coyotes, who they beat 3-1 earlier in the season.
