When you hear that one of the Sharks handed someone their lunch during last night's game, most fans are going to think that Jody Shelley must have been working, but in this case you’re mistaken. This honor goes to the Sharks newcomer Brad Staubitz.
His point production (three in 35 games) may not be the most impressive in the NHL for a rookie, but his physical play really showed why he is in the lineup. He is third on the team in penalty minutes with 76 (only led by Shelley (and Blake’s bonehead mistakes) and was more of a constant force on the ice, reminding the other teams to keep there heads up and play an honest game.
So when the Sharks faced the Nashville Predators on Mar. 19 and Jordan TooToo decided to drop the gloves with Brad Staubitz...well, let's just say TooToo won't forget the term "ass-handed" for some time.
