2.7 Owen Nolan retirement ceremony Pt. 2
On it must here. I hope I got the marbles out of my vote for everybody can hear me there but that. Just wonder if they can graduation. Not a great career. And it was. A pleasure to play against you but even more pleasure pleasure play live here. I'd also like out on my -- made nature of that they want to match. What I can out of there. Or otherwise and so they were what we are there they remember. No matter what game that was for all of it gamers he'd have to -- -- it was a spirited competitor in card. Just. Video game ping pong. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- A great -- I wish I could've been that way they've done. Thanks much. That's Bryan marchment of course is involved in the San Jose Sharks organization doing quite it is scout he's probably calling from. A pay phone somewhere on the for a one. On his way somewhere. Couple other notes about falling to ten career twenty goal seasons six career thirty goal seasons and a couple of forty goal seasons he was the first forty goal scorer in Sharks history. And that of course was in 992000. And it always seemed to come back to San Jose you may have heard me earlier stated he scored his. Final hat trick against the San Jose Sharks he also played his final playoff game in the NHL against the San Jose Sharks and he played his thousandth game in the NHL. Also against the Sharks. Doing exactly what Doug Wilson did. Playing you know his thousandth game against the team he played for the Chicago Blackhawks captain so they have that in common. But the fourth goal of Owens career also scored -- marks the tenth 2009. Against the San Jose Sharks when he was playing for the Minnesota Wild so it all comes back full circle he's a business owner in town he's a proud property owner here and great family man. We have some other people on the telephone I believe. Let's go to the second caller who's there. Bellowed at -- spirited. Someone calling you -- are -- every day here for much of your courier. When you can represent all that people like that who compete every night and make it got very B I am born here from my. The highway between Phoenix and Las Vegas Sun no later than 99 that you know wouldn't want to use this. There's not much like it out there what my step. One -- great -- players that played the game and I wish you would bang your family the very best -- Mike Barnett. Thanks but it was a pleasure were going to. Mike Barnett are longtime agents have Owen Nolan represented him very well throughout his NHL career Mike could be here for me thank you. There's someone else it's also on the phone that would like to say something Owen Nolan. Let's go to -- third mystery caller. Thought that spot Nichols then and now listen now you've played for team Canada place you're golden. Both -- in 1997. That winning. The gold medal in Finland. Was sensational. For Canada and fifty years it took his win a gold medal and you are there in Salt Lake City in 2002. And we still wonder why you go to -- went to the dressing room to get that camera when -- Pat Quinn wanted to be and yet he's been the last shift but I guess you got the best pictures and doing so. Well you know all all I'm not you know lots you'll hear always the Canadian. You represented us proud and I wish you. -- family all the best here in retirement. Thank you very much it was an absolute honor to be there. Bob Nicholson for those of you who don't know is the president and Chief Executive Officer hockey Canada. And I would like to add it to Jarome Iginla captain of the Calgary Flames was a member of that. Canadian gold medal team. Also a couple of other people who played for the Sharks were on that team Rob Blake and Ed Belfour -- on that hockey club along with the likes of Steve eyes -- -- and Chris Pronger and a whole variety of great gold medal winning hockey players and we remember that this team USA won the silver medal with coach herb Brooks behind the bench for the last time Gary -- Jeremy Roenick also. Were on that team is as -- Sharks so. We thank all of vote those mystery callers who are no longer mysteries but realistically there are so many people who respect Owen Nolan -- family and everything he's done. And I think that the Sharks organization has put together very special video now that we'd like to see. About the career of only know one. And then it's. It's. About the video let's hear it. Owen Nolan is still 71 and the NHL's all time goal list and he's tied for the top 100 with Peter Forsberg for most points in his career. And on the San Jose Sharks list he's still third all time. And what's really interesting is -- he and Patrick -- are the only two people who have 200 goals or more. Any shark uniforms so there's a great deal of honor that we have here to celebrate today for Owens career. We certainly thank him for his years with the San Jose Sharks I can say that there was always great working with you on the radio and I know that. My compatriots on TV feel the same way he showed a lot of leadership up for our organization we're very proud review where you develop not only as a player but also -- a father. A husband a man we really appreciate that. I'm at this time I'd like to call fourth. Two captains of the San Jose Sharks in history the other two that are here Patrick Marleau and of course the current captain Joseph Thornton. They would like to present a one with a special Sharks sweater. That this uniforms a little bit different. Then the one that on war because we've made a few changes over the years but I think it's symbolizes in commemorates his return home. Because this is the Sharks Jersey today. And he gets really appropriate that. The current captain of the Sharks in a former captain and current alternate.
