4 Comments

This just in from the San Jose Sharks:

WHAT: Former Sharks captain Owen Nolan will make an announcement regarding the future of his hockey career.

WHEN: Tues., Feb. 7, at 2:30 p.m. (PDT)

WHERE: The Grill at HP Pavilion

WHO: Owen Nolan, Doug Wilson, and “special guests”

And why? The Sharks didn’t include that part, but the speculation is Nolan will formally retire.

The 39-year-old hasn’t played in the NHL since 2010. He tried out with the Canucks in the fall, but was released.

Nolan was selected first overall in 1990 by the Quebec Nordiques. He spent eight seasons with the Sharks from 1995 to 2003, scoring 206 goals and 245 assists (not including the playoffs).
