Apparently this guy used to be pretty good. Nearly half of Owen Nolan’s 1200 regular season career games were played in a Sharks jersey; the talented right winger spent 8 seasons with the club (1995-2003), appearing in 568 regular season games. During this span, he accumulated 451 of his career total 885 points, potting 206 goals along with 245 assists. To this day, Nolan sits 4th in franchise scoring, 3rd in goals, and 4th in assists. Not too shabby. As the captain of the team from 1998-2003, Owen was the man who put San Jose on the map. He was instrumental in transforming the Sharks into a contending team, leading them to the playoffs in 5 of his 8 seasons. In 2001-2002, San Jose managed a 3rd place finish in the Western conference and a 1st place finish in their division – the highest results the franchise had ever achieved. What made Owen Nolan such an remarkable player was the fact that he didn’t specialize in any one area of the game – he specialized in several. He possessed a lethal combination of speed, skill, and toughness. And boy, he could hit like a freight train. Nolan was a fearless competitor who injected passion and intensity into every game he played. In 2012, he chose to retire a San Jose Shark.

My name is Vanessa... and I'm a hockeyaholic. I'm a Sport Media student at Ryerson University who simply loves sports. I've played hockey for 12 years but now prefer to assume spectating responsibilities as a loyal fan of the San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs. Thus, witnessing historic collapses is sadly nothing new to me. Fun fact: I've had a slight obsession with ex-NHLer Bryan McCabe ever since I was 7.
