J.R. Scores Goal #500

From the CP via TSN,

Roenick raised his hands and yelled as soon as the referee signalled the goal. He was immediately mobbed by his teammates.

The game was delayed a few minutes as Roenick skated in front of the Sharks’ bench with the puck raised above his head. He pointed into the stands as the crowd gave him an extended standing ovation. Even a few of the Coyotes joined in tapping their sticks.

Roenick became the third American-born player to reach 500 goals. The nine-time all-star ranks 40th in goals and 44th in points on the NHL career lists.

Can Nabby Play 82

from the Mercury News,

When Ron Wilson was asked recently how many games he planned to play goalie Evgeni Nabokov this season, the Sharks coach leaned back in his office chair and pretended to do the math in his head.

“Well, we have 82 regular-season games, and then add in the playoffs . . . ” Wilson said.

He was kidding.

Maybe.

Buccigross, Roenick and Some Top Plays

From John Buccigross at ESPN,

Last Friday afternoon, I was sure of two things:

1. You will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever see me in a pair of Crocs.
2. Jeremy Roenick would never say no to anything media related.

The first will forever hold true. But, much to my surprise, while Roenick was answering your e-mails over the phone, he told me that media exchanges like this will be few and far between this season.

STOP THE PRESSES!

Video below features ESPN’s Top Plays of the Week:

Slumping Cheechoo

from the Mercury News,

Two goals in 12 games? This puts Cheechoo on pace to score between 13 and 14 goals in an 82-game season. It isn’t the Cheechoo way.

See net, hit net, pump fist. That is the Cheechoo way. Two years ago, he had 56 goals to lead the NHL. Last season, he topped the team with 37 goals. But so far this season, he has lost his mojo. Sharks Coach Ron Wilson has moved Cheechoo off the top line - and has even occasionally used him on the penalty kill, to help get Cheechoo’s mind off his scoring speed bump and have him simply think about playing hockey.

2 Goal NHL Debut

From David Pollak at the Mercury News,

The guy hasn’t been around the locker room long enough for the Sharks to agree on his nickname - Coach Ron Wilson calls him Seto, Joe Thornton refers to him as Gooch.

Either way, rookie Devin Setoguchi was the difference-maker Monday night, scoring two third-period goals in his first NHL game to lead the Sharks to a 4-2 comeback victory over the Dallas Stars.

My vote is definitely ‘Seto’. Anyway, just for the heck of it, here’s the video from ESPN showing his career highlights thus far.  Nice way to start.

USA Hockey Milestones in Reach Tonight

From Mike Heika at The Dallas Morning News,

Tonight could be a memorable night for USA Hockey.

Stars center Mike Modano sits two points shy of tying Phil Housley for the most points by an American-born player. San Jose forward Jeremy Roenick is two goals shy of becoming only the third American-born player to record 500 goals in his career. Roenick said he’d like to see both milestones attained on the same night.

“It would be nice, because Mike would be in the building,” said Roenick, who contemplated retirement in the off-season. “He’s one of the guys who told me, ‘Hey, you’ve got to stick around,’ which meant the world to me.”

Rivet Calls Out Teammates

from the Mercury News,

“The only people to blame in this whole situation are the players,” said Rivet, who spent all or parts of 12 seasons in Montreal before coming to San Jose in a trade last February. “The coaching staff gives us a detailed system to go out and play. It’s not difficult. This team’s been playing it for a long time.

“Guys just aren’t prepared to work right now and there’s far too many guys that are not giving 100 percent and in turn, not giving us the success that we want.”

Ozolinsh Update

from Working the Corners at the Mercury News,

For those asking about Sandis Ozolinsh . . . The veteran defenseman did play in two games with Worcester on a professional tryout contract and did get one assist. That stint is completed and Ozolinsh has returned to San Jose where he’ll pracitce this weekend under Mike Ricci’s watchful eye, then resume skating with the Sharks next week. Asst. GM Wayne Thomas, who’s in Detroit with the team, said the process is playing itself out and advised trying not to read too much into Ozolinsh’s return to San Jose at this point.

Sharks Bonding in Banff

From David Pollak at The Mercury News,

The current challenge is curling, a popular Canadian sport and the main event on the Sharks’ three-night retreat into the Canadian Rockies west of Calgary.

“This is my first time ever,” Roenick said. “Americans aren’t very good curlers.”

The Sharks are visiting here for the second consecutive year. With three days off between Monday night’s 4-1 victory over the Flames and Friday night’s game at Detroit, the NHL schedule all but dictated this stopover.

“It would be asinine to travel back here to practice, and then have another flight to Detroit,” Sharks Coach Ron Wilson said before the team left San Jose on its four-game trip. “It’s actually cheaper to do this.”
