The 2008-09 San Jose Sharks season was the Sharks' 18th season in the National Hockey League (NHL).

Season events

Pre-season

On June 12, the San Jose Sharks named Todd McLellan their new head coach.[1]

The Sharks traded for defensemen Dan Boyle and Brad Lukowich from the Tampa Bay Lightning and signed Rob Blake.

Former Shark Jeff Friesen tried out for a spot on the team, but the team released him before the season opener.

Kyle McLaren was placed on waivers, just before the regular season began. He was not claimed by any NHL team and was thus sent down to the Sharks' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Worcester Sharks, to receive more playing time and so that the Sharks could play under the salary cap.
