The San Jose Sharks are one of the NHL's newest teams, and they were founded in 1991 in San Jose, California. However, since their inception, even though they have never won the Stanley Cup, they have done a lot of winning. The Sharks have six division titles to their name- 2002, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011. During that stretch of four straight division titles they were on one of the NHL's best teams each season. Despite the lack of a Stanley Cup, it was still a pretty good run. The Sharks general manager is Doug Wilson, and as if May 20, 2015, they are searching for a new head coach. The Sharks play at the SAP Center at San Jose, which was originally opened as the San Jose Arena in 1993.
The Sharks finished the regular season this year with a just 89 points, good for the third worst total in the Western Conference. As of this moment, this is an older team at the end of their run, and it appears as if a rebuild is on the way. Join your fellow fans and pick up some Sharks tickets today.
