HEAD COACH SHELDON KEEFE
On tonight’s win:
Sheldon Keefe: “I thought tonight the guys worked hard. I thought we were really good in key moments,
we had big time plays from both John and Will to start the game to put us up one. We had a huge goal in
response to giving up one and then a great sequence that leads to the Matthews goal to get us to 3-1 and
then a clinical powerplay to get us to 4-1. So there are really key moments there where we were really
good but in general, I didn’t think we were very good at 5-on-5. The penalty killing was good, goaltending
was good but our game at 5-on-5 didn’t look anything like it’s looked here of late. I don’t blame our
approach or our mindset or anything like that it’s just the game was a lot quicker and lot more open today
than we would like it to be or has been in recent games. We led virtually for the entire game and that
leads to interesting and challenging dynamics. In terms of our work and our results and being good in
very key moments those are all really good things for us in a 4-1 game where I didn’t think we were very
On the performance of his line:
Wayne Simmonds: “I felt like our game was touch and go to be honest with you. I thought we did a lot of
good things but there were a lot of things we could have done better. In saying that, I thought we did a
good job offensively and were in on a big goal together that helped the team win so all-in-all it was a
pretty solid game.”
On the team’s commitment to defence:
Wayne Simmonds: “I think that is what we’ve been keying in on over the last little bit here. Everyone has
done a really good job. Joseph Woll played really great tonight, he played unbelievable and he made
some huge saves, especially in the third period and we didn’t allow them to creep back into the game so
that was huge. We’ve made a conservative effort over the last long haul here to make sure we play this
game well defensively and offensive will come through.”
On the team’s performance:
William Nylander: “I think we came out and generated chances and it was a little too much back-andforth I thought but other than that Joe made some huge saves for us and we just have to keep building off
On if he’s been trying to generate more shots on net:
William Nylander: “Yeah, I think I was slipping on my shots and haven’t been putting stuff on net and I
need to keep that going and score goals.

HALL OF FAMER
General Manager Doug Wilson was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Nov. 15. Wilson became the sixth player with Sharks roots to be
enshrined, following Igor Larionov (2008), Ed Belfour (2011), Rob Blake (2014), Sergei Makarov (2016) and Teemu Selanne (2017). In 1,024 NHL
games with the Chicago Blackhawks and the Sharks, Wilson recorded 827 career points (237g, 590a), which ranks 15th all-time amongst NHL
defensemen. Wilson was the recipient of the 1982 James Norris Trophy, was named to three NHL All-Star teams and played in seven NHL All-Star
Games. Internationally, he was selected to represent Canada in the 1984 Canada Cup and the Rendez-vous ’87 series. Acquired by the Sharks in 1991,
the blueliner served as the Sharks first captain during his two seasons (1991-1993) with the club as a player.
Mario Ferraro blocked a season-high seven shots and recorded a pair of assists on Nov. 24 against Ottawa. The 23-year-old defenseman has 10 points
(2g, 8a) through the first 19 games of the season, his most through the first 19 games of a season in his career. Ferraro paces all NHL players in
blocked shots (58) and sits 12th among League skaters with 24:53 of ice time per game. In the month of November, he ranks tied-seventh among NHL
defensemen in points (2g, 7a) and eighth in time on ice per game (25:33). The alternate captain played a game-high and career-high 31:12 on Nov. 6
against New Jersey and is one of eight League skaters to play 30 or more minutes in a game this season.
HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT
San Jose recorded a season-high 40 hits on Nov. 20 against Washington. This marked the 22nd time that the franchise had tallied 40 or more hits in a
game and the first time that the team recorded 40 or more hits since Oct. 2, 2019 at Vegas (also 40 hits). Rudolfs Balcers (six) and Radim Simek (five)
both tied career-highs for hits in the game. Jacob Middleton recorded a new career high for hits in a period and hits in a game with four hits in the first
period of the Sharks Nov. 22 game against Carolina.
James Reimer is sixth in save percentage (.936) and seventh in goals-against-average (2.04) among NHL goaltenders with five or more games played.
Reimer has helped the Sharks earn points in seven of his ten starts and earned the win in the Sharks Nov. 22 game against Carolina (22 saves) and
Nov. 24 game against Ottawa (26 saves). No goaltender in franchise history with five or more games played has posted a better save percentage (.950)
or goals-against-average (1.54) through the first ten games of a season. Reimer’s .936 save percentage and 1.86 goals-against-average in 19 regular
season games in a Sharks uniform leads all franchise goaltenders with more than ten games played.
TIMO TIME ALL THE TIME
Timo Meier has recorded at least one point in eleven of the fourteen games he has played in this year. This season, he is averaging career-bests in
points per game (1.29), time on ice per game (18:02), shots per game (4.21) and blocked shots per 60 minutes (2.85). Meier has recorded the gamewinning goal in two of the Sharks last three wins. The winger tallied three points (1g, 2a), three hits, two blocked shots and two takeaways in San Jose’s
6-3 win over Ottawa on Nov. 24.
Since Bob Boughner took over coaching duties on Dec. 11, 2019, San Jose has manned the sixth ranked penalty kill (82.5%) in the league and
are tied-eighth with ten short-handed goals in that span. This season, the Sharks currently rank second in the NHL on the penalty kill (48-for-54, 88.9%)
and are first in short-handed goal differential (minus-four).
Scott Reedy made his NHL debut on Nov. 22 to become the league-leading seventh club skater to make their debut this season (others: Jonathan
Dahlen, William Eklund, Santeri Hatakka, Artemi Kniazev, Ryan Merkley and Jasper Weatherby). San Jose also leads the NHL in number of
rookies to play games (ten) and number of rookie defensemen to play games (five). Entering Nov. 23, Dahlen is second among all League rookies in
goals (seven) and first in game-winning goals (two) and became the third Sharks skater ever to record two or more game-winning goals within their first
ten NHL career games (others: Marco Sturm – 3 GWG, Joe Pavelski – 2 GWG). Weatherby is first among 2021-22 League rookies (min. 100 faceoffs) in
faceoff percentage (50.3%).
MODEL OF CONSISTENCY
Since being named the team’s general manager on May 13, 2003, Doug Wilson has strategically built the San Jose Sharks into one of the NHL’s top
franchises through strong drafting, shrewd trades and timely free agent signings. In his 19 seasons in charge of the Sharks hockey department, Wilson
has guided the team to its most successful era since the franchise’s inception, capturing a Presidents’ Trophy (2009), five Pacific Division titles,
advancing to the Western Conference Final on five occasions (2004, 2010, 2011, 2016, 2019) and appearing in the Stanley Cup Final (2016). In his
tenure as general manager, no other franchise has more wins than the Sharks (741):

BONINO BACK HOME
On Oct. 16, Sharks forward Nick Bonino became the fifth player in league history to play more than 500 career regular-season games before playing
their first game for the club that originally drafted them. Bonino was drafted by the Sharks in the sixth round (173rd overall) in 2007 but was traded to the
Anaheim Ducks on March 4, 2009.
On Nov. 24, Bonino scored his first goal for the Sharks and joined seven other players who had played 500 or more career regular-season games before
scoring their first goal for the club that originally drafted them.
