The history of San Jose Sharks' fighters and enforcers is full of some gritty players who share a special place in the minds of franchise-long Shark fans.
They can think back to Owen Nolan or Scott Parker, or even today's fighters like Ryane Clowe, Jamal Mayers and Douglas Murray.
But the majority of today's Sharks team can be considered anything but fighters. In fact, the team as a whole can be referred to as a bunch of pretty boys with, Thornton, Marleau and Heatley rarely throwing a punch.
But today's game has changed. It isn't as gritty as it once was, which is why the history of Sharks' fighters contains players from the distant past and a few from the past couple of seasons.
These 10 players played a major role in building this Sharks franchise and the Sharks reputation as a team that will contend for the Cup year in and year out, one punch at a time.
