by Patrick Hooper / San Jose Sharks


Just about every Sharks fan has a different reason for liking a certain player. Some admire their skill on the ice. Others like the stories they hear of the man off the ice. But for whatever reason, no matter how uniquely justified, Sharks fans all gravitate towards cheering for their favorite player to do well every game night.

We asked Sharks twitter fans to share their reasons for liking their favorite player. All responses were sent to the Sharks official Twitter account @SanJoseSharks and the top 10 responses are counted down below.

Honorable Mention. From @shrks4dacup: Who cares which player? It's a team game and I just love to turn the TV on and watch the #sjsharks as a whole!

10. From @thequeenkb: my boy Jamie McGinn loved him last year , and excited to see what a great season he's having!

9. From @kstops: Antti Niemi, he's a goalie full of surprises and great moves. He's quick and very dependable a perfect fit for the SJ Sharks.

8. From @RaptorJesuss: Always fun to watch @Burnzie88 (Brent Burns), wicked shot and good defensive awareness. Also can lay some major checks out.

7. From @puckinawesome29: Vlasic 44 (Marc-Edouard Vlasic) because everything's better with pickles

6. From @Satyr69: I just love watching Douglas Murray lay a well timed hit on another player! Crankshaft SMASH!

5. From @teapotsonfire: RYANE CLOWE. he's just a beast in all ways. he will start a fight to get the team riled up & he ALWAYS has his teammates back!

4. From @thequeenkb: Patrick Marleau for his speed and break away goals! My pug @darlaroo knows she gets a treat when he scores!!

3. From @NoGo12: Logan Couture! Hes tough, fast and can score. He seems like a good guy that just plays because he loves the game

2. From @Pendulumsu: (Joe Pavelski) Pavs. He's my daughter's fave. I love her infamous Joe 8 Dance for goals/wins. She gets MAD when he's checked.

1. From @hoffweezy2: gotta be jumbo joe (Joe Thornton). His sauce is mamas homemade marinara
