For two decades, from 2000-01 to 2020-21, the San Jose Sharks enjoyed relative stability in goal, going from Evgeni Nabokov to Antti Niemi to Martin Jones without pause.

But it’s becoming so – over the last three years, GMs Doug Wilson, Joe Will, and Mike Grier have brought in would-be starter after would-be starter, Devan Dubnyk in 2020-21, James Reimer, Adin Hill, and Kaapo Kahkonen in 2021-22, and now, Mackenzie Blackwood.
