What do you want to know about Jasper Weatherby?

San Jose Hockey Now subscribers, ask away!

The popular San Jose Sharks rookie will take your questions in a special SJHN subscriber Q&A.

If you’re a SJHN subscriber, just drop your questions in the comments here — and I’ll ask Jasper as many of your questions as I can. Let’s try to get all questions in by next weekend.

San Jose Hockey Now, by the way, is running a special sale right now: The annual price is just $22.99, a $7 savings from the regular price. That’s basically two free months! A monthly SJHN subscription is just $3.49.

If I may say, that’s a bargain price for the most complete San Jose Sharks coverage around: You won’t find more Sharks coverage elsewhere, including on-site coverage of Sharks road games and regular Barracuda coverage.

If it’s San Jose Sharks, you’re going to find it here.

Finally, last but certainly not least: Thanks to those of you who have been subscribing to San Jose Hockey Now and/or contributing to my Travel Tip Jar.

This exclusive Q&A is for you.

I know there hasn’t been as much subscriber-only content in the past month. That’s in part, when SJHN entered into a partnership with NBC Sharks, that they requested less subscriber-only, more open-to-all articles early in our agreement.

But we’re going to step up our subscription content right now. This Weatherby Q&A will be just the start of some exciting subscriber-only stuff this season.

Thank you for subscribing!

What was the message from coaches about the healthy scratch?

What is one skill that you now realize you need to improve in your game?

Does Lord Jasper Weatherby know that his nickname in the Sharks fan base is “The Lord”

Who’s one player from development camp who you think may be under the radar in terms of potential other than the bigger names like Eklund and Bordeleau ect…?

Alex

Where does he himself see his ceiling? Does he set point totals for himself? Does he practice for hockey fights? How scary is it when you are the net front guy and there is a slap shot coming? How does it not kill or seriously injure more people?

Alex

What ideal skills from line mates compliment his skills best? Does he think that scout projections about him are mostly correct? Or not really?

Jakub Pudelek

As an NHL and Sharks rookie, what was the most surprising aspect of joining the team and the league?

Bee

Which is a better hug, cellying after a goal or hugging the goalie after a win?

Joshua Zalk

What would it take to get an autograph from you, Lord Jasper?

Joshua Zalk

When you scout college hockey prospects, what skills, character traits, and mentalities have you noticed translate to NHL success? For instance, what unique intangibles did Cale Makar and Mario Ferraro bring about in college? What has allowed you to make your NHL debut shortly after your college career?

Douglas Fowler

When did he first become aware that the Sharks were interested in him? Who did you speak to and what was said in your first discussion after the Sharks squired your rights?

Thx Sheng!

JD Young

Does your family enjoy the Lord Jasper stickers?

Chris B.

JD you need to get all the young Shark’s moms and sisters slide into your DMs to get you more interviews! I’ll have to shoot over an email sometime.

Off season love to hear about age plateau / regression models applied to the Sharks to help forecast some fantasy hockey. Neat tool. I’ve heard you guys talk about age regressions a while back and cool if there’s some stats to back that up.

What has been the biggest adjustment lifestyle-wise going straight from UND to the NHL?

Grace Shang

As a fan from Oregon, I thought it was so awesome to see my team have someone from here! I was wondering what it was like growing up a hockey fan/player there and how you knew it was something you were serious about.

Also — any funny stories about hanging out with the other younger guys from development camp or the beginning of the season? Hockey or non-hockey related!

Jasdeep

Long time ago, but what convinced Weatherby and his family that he needed to and could make the jump from Ashland/Medford to Canada?

Has Brent Burns ever brought up these pics? https://twitter.com/WenatcheeWild1/status/1010579349236404227/photo/1

Jasper,
I’ve paid attention to your career since you were drafted. You deserve a lot of praise for making it to the NHL. I know a lot of fans on these sites didn’t give you a chance. What is the best thing you can say for your success??

Skyer Greenberg

How did it feel to skate out of the Shark head for the first time and scoring in your first NHL game against the Jets?

Klara Christensen

What was the experience like being drafted by the team you grew up rooting for?

T

Do you have any pre-game rituals or anything in particular that motivates you before a game?

Favorite things about San Jose?

What was the moment like, hearing you were drafted by the team you’ve been rooting for?

Best chirps/chirper you’ve encountered, on the Sharks or from an opposing team?

Are there any players you model your game after? Any players you were starstruck to see on the ice (or in the locker room)? Players you love playing against?

Babak Shahrivar

His joining the Sharks was a bit of a surprise to Sharks fans as it seemed to happen very suddenly. At what point did he realize he had a serious chance of making an NHL roster this season?

rphillips19

What’s his nickname?

What’s his most memorable off ice moment this year?

Nicholas Flohr

What were the after-effects of the legendary 5-OT game against Minnesota Duluth? Did you legs feel gelatinous the next day or did you need to do some extensive post-game ice baths?

Chris B.

Nick thank you working Sheng on the weekly pod. Great content, enjoy the guest interviews. Sports Logic Stat of the week isn’t something we get from the other pods out there. Keep up the great work!

Chris B.

Lord Jasper (as the Content Boyz dub you) what did you learn from wearing a letter the last year of your college career?

What areas of your game are you focusing on to take on more minutes, grab more special team time, or jump up in the lineup if the opportunity arises.
