With the San Jose Sharks having a few days off for their All-Star break, let’s do a quick check-in on what some of the team is doing.
Radim Simek and his wife have spent some time with family in town over the break. With a trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and some family time around town, it looks like their relaxation has kept them busy.
Logan Couture was a supportive captain and headed to Las Vegas for the All-Star Game and was able to catch up with former Sharks captain Joe Pavelski while supporting Timo Meier. Couture shared a reunion photo on Instagram with everyone looking like they had a great night. Ex-Sharks Joel Ward and Chris Tierney also got in the pic.
Following his time in Vegas, Meier took a trip down to Cabo San Lucas, it looks like with Matt Nieto. Let’s hope they both are able to find some relaxation and were able to “turn off their brains” just as Meier was hoping for following the All-Star Game.

Jasper Weatherby headed out to Pebble Beach to see some childhood friends, including PGA pro Dylan Wu, who was competing in the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Tomas Hertl decided on a trip to Honolulu, Hawaii. It’s difficult to imagine wanting to be anywhere else when you see views like this:
Another Shark Jonah Gadjovich and his wife also headed out to the Hawaiian Islands. They have been able to spend some time on the water, including some time snorkeling and whale watching.
