San Jose Sharks players use Olympics break to catch a real shark

While most of the hockey world is focused on the Sochi Olympics this month, the players who didn’t get to participate are making the most of their down time, including some San Jose Sharks players, who used the down time to do a little fishing.

Andrew Desjardins, Tommy Wingels, Raffi Torres and Joe Thornton chartered a boat in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and went deep sea fishing.

One of their catches – almost predictably – was a shark.

Of course, the players posed with the trophy to prove that it actually did happen.

The group also managed to reel in a marlin during the trip, but the guys ultimately released it. There was no word on what happened to the shark. If they didn't realease it, the only fitting place to put that particular trophy would be in the team's locker room.
