Tank Tunes: 2019-20 Season Schedule

by Ann Frazier /

The day the next season's schedule is release is one of the most widely anticipated days of the offseason, as it's one of the points that signals the transition to a new season. In honor of that, we wanted to do more than the normal schedule release - we wanted to make a schedule that's more than just a schedule. 

We turned the 2019-20 Sharks schedule into a (very epic, very long) playlist. 

Using songs and artists have some sort of connection to the night's opponent, we've created an 82 song playlist spanning all sorts of artists and genres to take you through the 82 game season. 

If this sounds familiar, yes, we did it last season.

So sit back, grab the aux cord, and hit play.

Sharks Conclude 2019 NHL Draft With Five Selections

by San Jose Sharks @SanJoseSharks /

VANCOUVER, BC - The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) concluded the 2019 NHL Draft today with Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and Director of Scouting Doug Wilson Jr. making five selections overall in the 2019 NHL Draft. 

San Jose opened Day Two of the 2019 NHL Draft by trading their second-round selection (41st overall from Philadelphia) to the Vegas Golden Knights for a second round selection (48th overall) and a 2019 third round selection (82nd overall). With the 48th overall selection, the Sharks chose Artemi Kniazev from the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the QMJHL. The defenseman appeared in 55 games for the Sagueneens, scoring 34 points (13g, 21a) in his first QMJHL season. The five-foot-ten, 182-pound blueliner finished seventh among first-time eligible CHL defensemen in points-per-game and ranked third among Chicoutimi rookies in points. He was ranked 41st overall in the NHL Central Scouting, North American skaters and 58th overall by The Hockey News. According to elite prospects: "A puck-moving offensive defenseman, Knyazev has a very fluid skating stride and displays seamless edges and great acceleration." 

The Sharks then traded up in the second round to acquire an additional second round selection (55th overall) from New Jersey in exchange for two 2019 third round selections (82nd overall, acquired from Vegas and San Jose's own 91st overall selection) to choose left wing Dillon Hamaliuk from the Western Hockey League. The six-foot-three, 194-pound winger finished his third season with the Seattle Thunderbirds, recording 26 points (11 goals, 15 assists) in 31 games played. He won a WHL Championship with Seattle in the 2016-17 season.
