Trouble for San Jose

Our newly aquired LW, and potential starter opposite Jonathan Cheechoo and Joe Thornton  may not get that oppurtunity for a while. Sharks LW Mark Bell, who has yet to play a game with San Jose, was arrested the past weekend for suspicion of a felony hit and run as well as driving under the influence.  

Greg Jamison, President and CEO of the Sharks commented this morning:

“We are aware of the incident, and it’s not one that our organization takes lightly.  Mark is an excellent young man who was just last season selected as ‘Man of the Year’ for being ‘the player most heavily involved in the community’ by his former team, the Chicago Blackhawks. Our organization has always believed in accountability and responsibility for your actions. We are in the process of finding out the details of the situation and will treat this as an internal matter moving forward.”

The results of the chemical test have not been released but Bell was released Monday afternoon after posting a $35,000 bond.

Bell was aquired this summer from Chicago in a three way deal that sent Tom Priessing to Ottawa.

No comments have been made about what Bell might face if convicted.
