The Worcester Sharks are a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League (AHL). The franchise is located in Worcestermarker, Massachusettsmarker. The Sharks and the city of Worcester hosted the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic.

History

On January 6, 2006, the San Jose Sharks announced that they were moving their American Hockey League affiliate, the Cleveland Barons, to Worcester, Massachusettsmarker. The Sharks played their first home game on October 14, 2006, in front of a sold-out 7,230 fans in a shootout loss to the Portland Pirates. The Sharks play their home games at the DCU Centermarker in Downtown Worcester. The Sharks qualified for the postseason in their first season, but were knocked out in 6 games by the Manchester Monarchs in the first round. The Sharks' main rival is the Providence Bruins, which dates all the way back to early IceCats' days. Over the past few years, a rivalry with the Norfolk Admirals has developed. Even though they play each other 3 or 4 times a year, the games are usually very intense and physical usually containing fights, including multiple line brawls, one including a goalie fight between Thomas Greiss and Jonathan Boutin.

On Sunday November 1, 2009, Head Coach Roy Sommer became only the fourth coach in AHL history to record 400 wins. Currently, Sommer is the longest tenured coach in the AHL.
