Shark Life: Going To Need A Bigger Mask

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

The San Jose Sharks are not strangers to the 1975 Steven Spielberg blockbuster Jaws.

The infamous soundtrack is played ahead of every power play at home. Martin Jones featured the character Quint on his goalie mask during the 2017-18 season.

But Sharks prospect Antoine Bibeau just took the Jaws connection to the next level.

Recently revealed on Twitter by Air Brush Zap's Sylvie Poitras, Bibeau's new mask dedicates plenty of real estate to the classic movie.

Shark Life: Happy Gilmore

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Everyone is well aware of Sharks captain Joe Pavelski's skills on the ice. And now people know about his skills on the green.

This past weekend, Pavelski took part in the annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe, his third time at the tournament. Rife with celebrities and athletes alike, the skill level of the players range from three-time champ Mark Mulder to the famously bad Charles Barkley. Turns out that Pavelski is more on the Mulder part of that range.

A lot more on the Mulder part of that range.

Shark Life: Meant To Be

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Sometimes, things are almost fated to happen. 

Last weekend, the San Jose Sharks participated in the 2018 NHL Draft, drafting five players to help restock the prospect pipeline. And while none of them were born or grew up in the Bay Area, that didn't mean there's no connection between the Sharks and these draft picks.

Heck, one of them was already a Sharks fan. 

Fourth round pick Jasper Weatherby already knows the Tank's favorite chant, tweeting out #BeatLA ahead of one of the playoff games.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: We feel like the #SJSharks latest draft pick might fit in well here... https://t.co/gKcmtSSJsB

This weekend San Jose Sharks veteran Joe Thornton was honored in his hometown of St. Thomas, Ontario. What used to be named the Timken Centre was renamed the Joe Thornton Community Centre. Ain't it pretty?

Shark Life: Fans Choose the Beards

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

This summer the NHL kicked off their inaugural Fan Choice Awards. With ten different categories, the Sharks took the lead in nominations with four awards up for grabs- Top Player Tweet, Best Bromance, Best Dog, and Best Hockey Smile.

Fans voted and chose the player's fate. To little surprise, the bearded beauties took home the cake!

Brent Burns and Joe Thornton won Best Bromance...for obvious reasons.

To show his love for all those that voted, Brent Burns took time out of his busy offseason at the ranch and posted a message on Instagram.

Shark Life: Shark in the Water

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water…

Usually, when a shark is spotted in the water, there's mass panic and a blockbuster movie lurking about. But things are a little different at the Burns household, especially where Jagger Burns' birthday is concerned.

Jagger (who you may know for his All-Star Game antics) invited mascot S.J. Sharkie to his birthday party - a birthday pool party. And of course, S.J. Sharkie couldn't resist joining the kiddos in the water. 

Tweet from @sjsharkie: Just finishing the day hanging out in the pool with @Burnzie88 for Jagger���s birthday. What are you doing ;) pic.twitter.com/qJeqq2opt4

Shark Life: Seeing Double

Joe Thornton's doppelganger is found in Vancouver

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Joe Thornton didn't make the trip to Vancouver… Or did he?

A fan with an eery resemblance to the legendary Jumbo Joe appeared at Saturday's game between the San Jose Sharks and Vancouver Canucks. Clad in a classic Sharks jersey and rocking a beard only slightly more tamed than the one on Thornton's face, he had Sharks and Canucks fans (and official twitter accounts) doing a double take all night.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: Whoa. pic.twitter.com/R9yqgIG7kf

Shark Life: Making Dreams Come True

Brent Burns leaves Vancouver at least two sticks lighter

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

It's for the kids.

The Sharks left Vancouver at least two sticks lighter after two young fans caught the attention of Brent Burns during warmups prior to Saturday's game. 

The first fan had gone to the glass for warmups, armed with a sign that spelled out a wager she had made with her parents: if she gets a stick from Burns, she gets a dog.

Tweet from @SanJoseSharks: What do you say, Burnzie? �� pic.twitter.com/HKt2oofvjP

Brent Burns, a notorious animal lover, couldn't ignore that request.

Shark Life: Game, Set, Match

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Last night's Match For Africa 5 at SAP Center was the place to be if you're a tennis fan in the Bay Area. Featuring Roger Federer, Jack Sock, Bill Gates, and Savannah Guthrie, it was a star-studded event that saw Federer play in the Bay Area for the first time in his career. 

With no games until Thursday, it was no surprise that some of the San Jose Sharks decided to take in the charity match. 

Joe Thornton, Timo Meier, and Tomas Hertl, among other members of the team, were in attendance for both the doubles and singles charity matches. And they even got to meet the GOAT himself. 

Instagram from @tmeier96: What an honour to meet @rogerfederer today and watch him play for a great cause #rf #goat ������
