My Time as a Shark: Looking Back on My Days in San Jose

One of my favorite seasons in the NHL was playing for the San Jose Sharks with my good buddies Brent Burns, Joe Pavelski, and of course the living legend Jumbo Joe. In this episode, I share some of my experiences in San Jose, dressing room hijinks with the guys, the story of Thornton losing his captaincy, and more. I also take a look at their chances of finally getting "over the hump" and bringing home Lord Stanley -- is this the year?
