GLENDALE, Ariz. — A day after the San Jose Sharks’ season-opening victory over Arizona, San Jose Hockey Now caught up with Timo Meier for an exclusive 1-on-1.

We mostly chatted about his off-season, asking the hard-hitting questions like who’s the best-looking Sharks player in a turtleneck? What’s up with the BBQ grill he was hawking? He also talked about what the kids’ hockey camp that he started over the summer in his native Herisau means to him.

But we also touched on more serious topics: Did you know that Meier received a death threat from a St. Louis Blues fan after his “hand pass” goal in the 2019 Western Conference Finals? He also talked about his pre-Draft interview with the San Jose Sharks and how he was sure that they wouldn’t pick him.
