3. Ryane Clowe
The hard-hitting, goal-scoring winger Ryane Clowe was a San Jose fan favorite who energized both the fans and his teammates. Clowe got drafted in the 2001 NHL Draft by the Sharks with the 175th overall pick in the 6th round.
Ryane played on Team Teal for eight years (2005-2013) scoring 101 goals to go with 170 assists adding up to 271 points in 423 games played. His best season with San Jose was the 2010-11 season where he tallied a career season high 24 goals, 38 assists, and 62 points.
Clowe brought his A game to the ice every night and often but his body on the line for the sake of the Sharks. In recent years Clowe earned some caliber coaching jobs and is highly regarded for his coaching skills However he’s been dealing with some medical issues that stopped him from playing hockey and have now started to interfere with his future as a coach.
Whatever his future holds for the dynamic winger we’re all hoping for a Clowe to get back normalcy in his life whether that’s behind the bench or any other venture the 36-year-old chooses to take on.
