The summer is quickly drawing to an end which means only one thing: San Jose Sharks hockey will be back in no time at all. While August has been a quiet month in terms of Sharks news, there’s still plenty to get caught up on as the 2015-16 season figures to be a big one in San Jose.
Check out everything from the past week in the weekly roundup:
– The San Jose Sharks have long used “Rock and Roll, Part 2” as their goal song for home games, but their will be a new song blaring from the SAP Center speakers whenever San Jose scores a goal next year. Last week, the Sharks asked season ticket holders to help select a new goal song for the upcoming season.
– New goaltender Martin Jones experienced a somewhat down campaign last year, as he often saw plenty of days off in between his starts. At one point, he experienced 28 days in between starts which didn’t allow him to get into any sort of rhythm. With his trade to San Jose, expect Jones to bounce-back in a big way.
– The San Jose Sharks brought in some new faces over the offseason, and have some intriguing young talent that will be itching to break into the lineup. Check out how the Sharks might decide to set their lines on opening night.
