San Jose Sharks Alumni

San Jose Sharks Alumni

 

 

Since the team’s inception in 1991, more than 250 players have donned the Sharks sweater which has come to signify dedication, hard work and great hockey. These players have provided Sharks fans with countless unforgettable memories and have endeared themselves to the community in a way that few professional sports athletes have ever done. After their retirement or departure from the team, a significant number of these players are starting to call San Jose home and many have since been active in various Sharks Fan Development and Sharks Foundation activities. 
 
In order to continue the Sharks tradition of giving back and immersing themselves in the community, the San Jose Sharks Alumni Association was formed. The Sharks Alumni Association is more than just players getting together in a social group to talk about the "good old days." The alumni are dedicated to serving the youth and the fans in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area. This commitment to the community is emphasized in their mission statement: 
 
The San Jose Sharks Alumni Association is dedicated to serving the Northern California community by providing both financial support to children’s charities and assistance in the development of Bay Area youth hockey through participation and funding. Additionally, by utilizing our unique resources and relationships, we are devoted to maintaining strong ties with both current and former Sharks players in order to strengthen the bond between us and the Sharks fans - the best fans in the NHL. 
 
Former Sharks forward and Stanley Cup Chamion David Maley is president of the Sharks Alumni Association. Maley -- who played in 466 National Hockey League games for five teams -- is the owner and operator of Silver Creek Sportsplex, a multi-faceted sports and fitness destination featuring 240,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities and professional expertise. Maley has also been involved in Bay Area youth hockey for many years and has been a great ambassador for hockey at numerous Sharks Fan Development and Sharks Foundation events.
