The 2014–15 San Jose Sharks season was the 24th season in the National Hockey League.[2] The Sharks did not qualify for the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs, thus ending their ten-season playoff streak.

Off-seasonEdit

On May 15, 2014, following a first round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Kings, General Manager Doug Wilson made known his intentions to build a "younger, more aggressive team", announcing that the team would retain Head Coach Todd McLellan, but will move 33-year-old winger Martin Havlat, who still had one year on remaining his contract, and would not re-sign 37-year-old impending unrestricted free agent defenceman Dan Boyle.[3] The Sharks also acquired John Scott and Tye McGinn.[4]

Regular seasonEdit

The Sharks did not qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs for the first time since 2002–03, ending the second-longest active NHL playoff appearance streak at ten seasons.
