There is so much loudness in the game the San Jose Sharks play that the quietness of goaltender Martin Jones often gets lost in the shuffle.
The Sharks are led by a cadre of veterans with strong personalities and flashy games.
Defenseman Brent Burns has the biker beard and the booming slap shot. Forward Joe Thornton has a beard worthy of ZZ Top and the oversized personality worthy of a rock star. Captain Joe Pavelski and second-line center Logan Couture each wears his heart on his sleeves on the ice, as combative and competitive as you will find in the game.
As a result, they tend to get the headlines, and the soft-spoken Jones is often lost in the shuffle.
“He’s confident and laid-back and relaxed, and nothing fazes him,” Couture said.
