Andrew Cogliano Now A Member Of The Colorado Avalanche

DENVER – The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that the team has acquired forward Andrew Cogliano from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2024 NHL Draft.

Cogliano, 34, has tallied 15 points (4g/11a) in 56 games for the San Jose Sharks this season, his 15th in the National Hockey League. He has totaled 425 points (174g/251a) in 1,122 career contests with the Edmonton Oilers, Anaheim Ducks, Dallas Stars and Sharks. Selected by Edmonton in the first round (25th overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft, Cogliano recorded an 830-game ironman streak from Oct. 4, 2007 through Jan. 13, 2018, which was the fourth-longest in the NHL at the time. He is one of two NHL skaters to appear in 800 consecutive games from the start of their career (Doug Jarvis, 964). 

The 5-foot-10, 179-pound center has collected 29 points (10g/19a) in 100 career postseason contests with Anaheim and Dallas. He helped the Stars reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2020 and paced the team in hits (89) and shorthanded time on ice (99:31) that season. Cogliano was part of Anaheim’s runs to the Western Conference Finals in 2015 an 2017, setting playoff career highs in goals (3) and points (9) and matching his career best in assists (6) in 2015.

An Eight-Year Extension For Tomas Hertl And The San Jose Sharks

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) Assistant General Manager Joe Will announced today that center Tomas Hertl has agreed to terms on an eight-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Tomas has evolved into a premier top-line centerman in the league, competing against the NHL's best players every single night and delivering significant results," said Assistant General Manager Joe Will. "There are few centermen in the NHL with his combination of physical and dynamic play and he is a player that you build a franchise around. We are fortunate to have two of the league's top centermen on one team with Tomas and Logan Couture.

"By agreeing to this contract, Tomas is cementing his path with the Sharks, following in the footsteps of some incredible players who have worn the Sharks crest. He has shown that he wants to play in San Jose for years to come and it shows his dedication to the organization and community since he joined the team in 2012. We are thrilled to have Tomas for another eight years."

Video- “Timo’s Night”

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Timo Meier set multiple team records with his five-goal outburst Monday afternoon in the Sharks’ 6-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings at SAP Center.

Meier became the first Sharks player to score five goals in a single game and his three first period goals, coming in 19:09, set another team record for the fastest hat trick from the start of a game. He then scored his fourth and fifth goals in the second period to stake the Sharks to a 6-1 lead.

Meier’s first four goals came in 18:22 of actual game time, setting another Sharks individual record. The former record of four goals in 22:46 was set by Tomas Hertl on Oct. 8, 2013 against the New York Rangers in what was his third NHL game.

“That’s now a long time ago,” Hertl said Monday. “Today was Timo’s night.”


Meier's five goals are below in one video.

San Jose Sharks Place Evander Kane On Unconditional Waivers

SAN JOSE, CA - The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) have informed Evander Kane that he has been placed on unconditional waivers with intent to terminate his contract for breach of his NHL Standard Player Contract and for violation of the AHL COVID-19 protocols.

The Club will have no further comment on this matter.

An Eastern Conference Team May Have Interest In Evander Kane

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

- There is credible chatter reaching Slap Shots that an Eastern Conference team has shown considerable interest in dealing for Evander Kane, the Sharks winger who on Nov. 30 is due to come off his 21-game suspension for violating NHL/NHLPA COVID-19 protocols, and no, it’s not the Rangers.

Kane, who has faced myriad personal issues throughout his career, was suspended for “an established violation of, and lack of compliance with, the NHL/NHLPA COVID-19 protocol” after being investigated by the league for falsifying his vaccination status. That is not some benign error or oversight. Kane’s current vaccination status is unknown. Of course, Kane apologized for his “mistake.”

The 30-year-old Kane, whose contract, at a $7 million average annual value, runs through 2024-25, led the Sharks with both 22 goals and 49 points last season while alienating multiple teammates...

- From Page Six: Which retired player, honored by his former team in a pregame ceremony, angrily accosted a member of the club’s upper management because a friend of his had been a healthy scratch for the match and was thus unavailable to pose with him in uniform during the pregame festivities?

- You think the idea of putting a TV reporter between the benches was a recent revolutionary development?

Well, in Game 4 of the 1974 semifinals when a drive by the Rangers’ Dale Rolfe struck Barry Ashbee in the right eye and thus ended the Philadelphia defenseman’s career, TV reporter Brian McFarlane not only went onto the ice (!) while Ashbee was being attended to and put on a stretcher, he actually got a comment from lineman Matt Pavelich about what had happened.

Imagine the league allowing that now.

Goaltending Has Been Great In San Jose

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

No one on the Sharks’ coaching staff has come out and explicitly said that James Reimer is the team’s No. 1 goalie.

Instead, Reimer’s statistics have done all the talking.

Reimer, in his third start in the last four games, stopped 26 of 28 shots Saturday in the Sharks’ 3-2 shootout loss to the New Jersey Devils. He was in net for all five points the Sharks earned on their five-game homestand, helping San Jose keep its season on the rails with multiple players still stuck in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.

The Sharks have gone 2-1-1 since coach Bob Boughner and several players — including defensemen Erik Karlsson, Jake Middleton, Radim Simek, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic — landed on the league COVID protocol list. Others out right now include forwards Timo Meier, Kevin Labanc, and Matt Nieto.

The Sharks (6-4-1) have received several noteworthy performances in that time, with Reimer at or near the top of the list.

After Saturday’s game, Reimer had a .946 save percentage, second-best among 39 NHL goalies who had played in at least five games. His 1.60 goals-against average was tops among all goalies in that category.

The San Jose Sharks With Eight Players Out Defeated The Winnipeg Jets In OT

from Curts Pashelka of the Mercury News,

James Reimer said the scene around the Sharks’ dressing room in the hours before their game with the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday was both disorderly and also perhaps strangely peaceful.

“Honestly, it was a bit chaotic,” Reimer said. “But other guys were calm and kind of having fun with it. Obviously, it was kind of a wild scenario.”

The Sharks found out just hours ahead of Saturday’s game that coach Bob Boughner, four of their top six defensemen, two players from their top line, and two veteran depth forwards were all unavailable. All but one had been placed in the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.

In their stead were five call-ups from the Barracuda, the Sharks’ AHL affiliate, including four who would be making their Sharks’ debut.

Despite the upheaval, the Sharks, with a patchwork lineup of savvy veterans and fresh-faced rookies, responded with one of their most inspired efforts of the last two-plus seasons.

Timo Meier scored a power-play goal at the 1:07 mark of overtime as the Sharks pulled out a 2-1 win over the Jets before an announced crowd of 11,845 at SAP Center.
