San Jose Sharks players celebrating a game win in 2006.

The San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California, United States. They are members of the Pacific Division of the National Hockey League's (NHL) Western Conference. Founded in 1991 as an expansion team, the Sharks have won the Pacific Division four times: in 2002, 2004, 2008 and 2009, and have made the playoffs in 12 of their 15 years in the league. San Jose has not won the Stanley Cup championship; the Sharks' longest run in the NHL playoffs came in 2004, when they lost to the Calgary Flames in the Western Conference Finals.[1]

Since their inception, 237 different players have played at least one regular season or playoff game for the Sharks. The team has had nine captains. Igor Larionov, who played centre for the team from 1993 to 1996, is the only Sharks player inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.[2] Patrick Marleau holds the franchise records for the most goals (276), assists (334), and points (610). Evgeni Nabokov has won a record 249 games as the Sharks' goaltender.

Notes Edit

  • a  Beginning in the 2005–06 season, ties are no longer possible. At the same time, the league began tracking overtime losses for goaltenders.[4]
  • b  Save percentage did not become an official NHL statistic until the 1982–83 season. Therefore, goaltenders who played before 1982 do not have official save percentages.[5]
  • c  The seasons column lists the first year of the season of the player's first game and the last year of the season of the player's last game. For example, a player who played one game in the 2000–01 season would be listed as playing with the team from 2000–01, regardless of what calendar year the game occurred within.
