    2017-18 SHARKS TEAM NOTES:WAIT FOR THE WESTThe Sharks begin the 2017-18 season with 10 of their first 11 contests coming against teams from theEastern Conference. Five of those 10 matchups are at home, while the other five are away. October marks San Joses highest amountof games against the Eastern Conference this season, with the next-highest coming in January (seven games). After this month, SanJose will be done with season series against both Buffalo and the NY Islanders. NEW YORK STATE OF MINDSan Jose will play five of its next eight games against teams from New York, facing the Sabres (twice),NY Islanders (twice), and NY Rangers all within a span of 17 days. 500 FROM THE BACK-ENDBrent Burns tallied his 500th career point, an assist, on Logan Coutures power-play tally on 10/4 vs.Philadelphia. He became the first defenseman and just the 20th player overall from his 2003 draft class to reach the 500 point plateau.Burns also became just the third active blueliner to reach 500 points, joining fellow Norris Trophy winners Zdeno Chara and DuncanKeith. FILLING UP THE SCORE SHEETKevin Labanc had a big night for San Jose, and found his name all over the score sheet on 10/4vs. Philadelphia. Labanc scored twice, San Joses first two goals of the season, and also added six penalty minutes in the Sharksseason opener. He became just the 7th player in Sharks history to post at least two goals and six penalty minutes in the same game,and the first since Jonathan Cheechoo recorded six penalty minutes, three goals and two assists on April 15, 2006 vs. Anaheim. UNUSUAL OPENENING OPPONENTUntil this season, the Sharks had never opened a season against the Philadelphia Flyers, and2017-18 marked just the second time in team history that the Sharks opened against a team outside of their conference (1996-97 vs.NY Islanders). 2017-18 is the second time San Jose hosted the Flyers for the Sharks home opener, having also hosted Philadelphia in2003-04, and the third time the Sharks opened their home half of the schedule against a team outside of their own conference: 1996-97NY Islanders, 2003-04 Flyers, 2007-08 Bruins. YOUTHFUL EXUBERANCEIn 2016-17, the Sharks AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda, as one of the youngest teams in the AHL,finished the regular season with the second-best record en route to the franchises first Western Conference Finals appearance. Inaddition, several players were recognized with league honors and Roy Sommer was tabbed as the AHLs Coach of the Year. 2016-17 Barracuda Regular Season Accomplishments Western Conference regular season champions (Bud Poile Trophy)Pacific Division regular season champions (John Chick Trophy)Goaltender of the year - Troy Grosenick (Aldege "Baz" Bastien Award)Coach of the year - Roy Sommer (Louis A.R.
