Today at 2:30 PM (PST), Owen Nolan will be given a one day contract by the San Jose Sharks so he can officially retire as a member of the team. Nolan, who has been out of the game for two years, played parts of eight seasons with San Jose, his most with any franchise.
In Nolan's tenure with San Jose, he scored 206 goals and 451 points, leaving him amongst the organization's higest scoring players of all time. Aside from his statistics, Nolan is remembered for a moments; his called shot in the All-Star Game, his goal from the center ice against Roman Turek, and his railroading of Ed Belfor, among other things, stand out as great moments in a great career.
As captain of the Sharks, Nolan came to embody the franchise and cement them in the hearts of the city. We welcome you to reflect on your memories of his time in San Jose throughout today.
