I looked wikipedia and saw that number is avaible so it can't be the reason. I appreciate your help, thanks.
There's this dude called Owen Nolan who once played for the Sharks and I think he was kinda important to this organization, the fans, and everything about hockey in the Bay Area. Nolan still tweets the Sharks' players, mascot, beat writer, and public faces, lives in he Bay Area and is friends with current Sharks who weren't even in the NHL when Owen was a Shark, had his retirement ceremony here, and publicly roots for Bay Area sports teams. He wore #11, FYI.

EDIT: I agree with the above. Even if #11 is never officially retired, no scrubs is ever going to wear it.
