Seriously, why are the Sharks always using a Shep picture when posting these updates?

EDIT:
Okay.
That classic Shep face, gotta love it.

Coach Todd McLellan said Sheppard may be someone who actually benefits from the NHL lockout.

“If there’s a player that this lockout scenario worked out for, it would probably be Shep,” McLellan said. “The injury, the surgeries, the recovery and then finding his game. The timing, the stamina, the conditioning, the mental part of it. He was lucky to have this time to accomplish that.”

Still, he added, Sheppard isn’t a lock to be on the opening roster in even a fourth-line role.

“It’s still his job to come and earn a spot, to perform,” McLellan said. “But we will give him that opportunity.”

Sheppard said he feels good about his progress and his game in ways that go beyond the points he’s put up in the AHL.

“Numbers are numbers, but just to be part of a group and coming to practice every day and travel with them is the kind of thing I’ve been wanting and missing since I’ve been injured,” he said. “You feel like you’re a hockey player, that you were meant to do it.”
For James Sheppard, camp is a chance to reward the Sharks for their interest and patience

He is a disgrace to that logo. Why Sharks? Why? Anywhere else but San Jose.

That was nice of his mom to comb his hair for him. He's been sitting still since he was three.

He is listed on both rosters on the team site. I'm guessing they haven't made a decision about him yet.

Most likely so that's why the Sharks re-signed him.

Calder. Even though he's not eligible. Still going to win it.

This season, Sheppard has played 34 games for Worcester, posting 23 points (eight goals, 15 assists) and 52 penalty minutes.

The kid has become quite the enforcer during his time in the AHL.

Yep, nearly 3 years since Shep last played an NHL game. That's a long time.

So, how did he look? Did he trip over his own huge feet? Kick his own skate from under himself? Did he at least sport the patented Jimmy Sheppard look out there?

His fans need to know every detail
