Pizza Factory Power Rankings: Movember Week 3

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

With the third week of November wrapping up, it means there has been ample time for mustaches to grow during Movember.

Every season, players around the league grow out their 'staches to raise awareness of men's health issues during the month of November. The San Jose Sharks are no different, with six players officially taking part in Movember (the majority of the other 17 or so players already have full beards).

The players, alongside Pizza Factory, are growing out there mustaches to raise money. And each week, sjsharks.com will rank how good the mustaches look through our completely arbitrary Movember rules, including (but not limited to) the following:

Follicular density
Overall grooming
Week-by-week progress (no coasting)
Can we see it?

Donate to the player (or mascot) who you think rocks the best 'stache. 

Compare to week one's rankings.
Compare to week two's rankings.

This week, we decided to surprise the players and take photos at last night's game, rather than let them prep the mustaches after practice, to see which stache has been least affected by performance-enhancing grooming.

Power Rankings: Great Pumpkins

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Boys and girls of every age, would you like to see something strange? Like... Sharks themed pumpkins?

Halloween is just around the corner, which means the decorative orange gouards are found on practically every corner. Some of them are even carved with amazing designs to either frighten passers-by, reference pop culture, or show off a person's fandom. 

Yesterday, sjsharks.com asked people to send over their Sharks-themed pumpkins, and received plenty of impressive submissions.

Power Rankings: Haunting Good Time

Where would the Sharks players haunt if they were the ghosts?

by Ann Frazier & Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

It's Friday the 13th, the spookiest day of the year (excluding Halloween). Superstitions come out full-force today, lest people walk underneath a ladder/break a mirror/walk by a black cat and earn bad luck. Or encounter a machete-wielding psycho named Jason. Either one. 

In honor of the day, sjsharks.com asked the Sharks players where (or who) they would haunt if they were a ghost, and got some pretty spooktacular answers.

Power Rankings: Preseason Portraits

by Casey Krygier / sjsharks.com

It's that time of year again (finally) when the players are back in action at SAP Center. Similar to back to school days when students take an annual school photo, the San Jose Sharks also take, say… back to hockey pictures. Whether the photos are taken in the midst of media day mayhem or as the players are walking into the rink in their gameday get up, there are plenty of cameras flashing for the Sharks starting roster this time of year.

This year's preseason portraits spawned many thoughts. So much so that we decided to rank them. Afterall, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Power Rankings: Open Videos

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

There's a reason the San Jose Sharks are well-known for having the best show in the NHL. For one, the giant Shark Head that many teams try to imitate but none come close. There's the Jaws music and the great crowd and the foghorn... But one of the key reasons the show is so good is because of the pregame open videos.

With less than a week away from the newest pregame open video being released to the world (also known as Opening Night), sjsharks.com decided to rank last season's open videos.

It's finally fall, and the signs are everywhere

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

After a long, hot summer, the seasons have finally changed and fall has arrived. The temperatures have dropped (however temporarily - this is California, after all), the leaves have started changing colors, pumpkin spice everything has started appearing on store shelves, oh, and hockey games have started being played.

In honor of one of the best seasons of the year, sjsharks.com has decided to rank the top five signs that fall has finally arrived.

Power Rankings: Then and Now

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Media Day is the NHL's equivalent of yearbook photo day taken to the next level, with all sorts of photos and video being taken of the players. Most significantly, the players take their media mugshots that will be used everywhere by everyone for the next year, from the official NHL site to next year's edition of the EA Sports NHL 18 franchise.

The mugshots are also a great way to see how the players have evolved over the years, from their first season with the big club to their current status as a grizzled (sometimes literally) veteran.

In honor of that evolution, sjsharks.com took a look at the mugshots of some of the longest-tenured Sharks players to see how they've changed their look over the years. 

Note: Despite evidence to the contrary, we swear there isn't a reverse-Yankees facial hair requirement on the San Jose Sharks. At least, we don't think there is.

Power Rankings: Fish Are Friends

One fish, two fish, cool fish, new fish

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

Earlier this week, a brand new addition to the Shark Tank was built and unveiled: an actual shark tank (plus other fish). Located in the new BMW Lounge, it hosts around 104 fish.

While fish are certainly friends and not food, not all fish are created equal. So here are the big fish in the tank, as ranked by sjsharks.com.
