Young Sharks Continue to Work in Offseason

by Ross McKeon /

The old cliché suggesting players head to the golf course once the season is over doesn't apply here. Saturday's ouster from the Stanley Cup playoffs means a different consequence for the San Jose Sharks. It's time to get back to work, especially for the younger players in the organization.

"Some of the guys on the Barracuda - the young players who are going to be very important for this team going forward - need to use this opportunity that they have by playing and pursuing the Calder Cup," Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said.

The constraints of the NHL's salary cap system places a greater importance on drafting and developing talent. The days of a spend-free economy are long gone. Teams that thrive from season to season find a way to replenish rosters with an influx of young talent.

And it's no different in San Jose.

No Excuses Made, Sharks Go 'Beyond Call of Duty' Playing Through Injuries

Thornton Plays Four Games vs Oilers with Torn MCL and ACL

by Ross McKeon /

Sharks coach Peter DeBoer called it the most courageous an effort he's ever seen. General manager Doug Wilson, admittedly in the hockey business a long time, said it still amazes him.

Both were referring to Joe Thornton, San Jose's 37-year-old "can't-keep-me-out-of-the-lineup" alternate captain, who played the final four games of the Sharks' first-round playoff series against Edmonton with a torn MCL and ACL in his left knee.

Thornton was scheduled to undergo surgery on Monday to repair the injury sustained on April 2 that cost Jumbo the final three games of the regular season and Games 1 and 2 against the Oilers.

"To see a player play with that type of injury tells you all you need to know about him," Wilson said.

Gameday Blog: Game 6 vs. Edmonton

The series returns to the Bay Area as the San Jose Sharks host the Edmonton Oilers

by Ann Frazier, Casey Krygier /

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

The first round series returns to San Jose for the final time as the Sharks and Edmonton Oilers face off in Game 6. It is a must-win game for the San Jose Sharks in front of their home crowd, as the Oilers lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.

Game 6 sees the Sharks coming off a disappointing overtime loss, the second time the team has lost by a margin of a single goal. 

"It's been a razor thin edge and we've on the wrong side of these games," head coach Peter DeBoer said yesterday.

One of the reasons that - outside of the Game 4 win - all the games have been close has been Martin Jones, who has picked up where he left off in last year's playoff run. 

With the intense home crowd behind them, the Sharks hope to force Game 7 and make the series return to Edmonton.

Jones Remains Strong Throughout First Round

by Ross McKeon /

While the Sharks focus is locked in at looking forward, at least they know Martin Jones has their back.

San Jose's goalie has quietly put together the most consistent performance among his teammates during the first-round Stanley Cup playoff match-up against Edmonton. Quietly, that is, until overtime of Game 5 Thursday night north of the border. That's when it became abundantly obvious Jones was certainly holding up his end of the bargain.

"He's been excellent," Sharks coach Peter DeBoer said Friday. "What I really liked about Jonsey last night was how well he played in overtime. We were on our heels a little bit, he made some huge saves to keep us alive and give us a chance to try and get one."
