Owen is a big golf fan who enjoys playing the many Bay Area courses. He also enjoys fishing in his spare time. Owen's favorite hockey memory was being drafted first overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. His favorite musical group is Tragically Hipp and his favorite movie is Usual Suspects. Owen truly enjoys the weather of San Jose. His favorite foods are seafood and Italian. Owen made history by becoming the first player to score a goal in the Sharks new jerseys when they debuted on 1/31/98 vs. Colorado in the Sharks 5-2 victory. Owen was also the model for the Sharks new uniforms last summer in a photo shoot. Owen took a vacation to Alaska last summer where he did a lot of fishing for rainbow trout. He spent a lot of time in San Jose during the offseason where one of his favorite activities is boar hunting. A premier power forward in the NHL, Owen has achieved his 200th goal and assist, 400th point and 1000th penalty minute this season. His favorite hockey memory was being drafted first in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Owen has a dog named Gabby. A member of the Western Conference All-Star team, he thrilled the hometown crowd by scoring a hat trick in the 1997 NHL All-Star Game in San Jose, scoring the third goal on one of the most memorable goals in All-Star history (his "called shot"). Owen was named an alternate captain during 1996-97 season.

Owen Nolan is the new captain of the Sharks; he is in his third season with the team. Owen's most memorable moment (to the fans) in the playoffs last season was when Ed Belfour ventured out of his net, leaving him fair game for Owen. Owen didn't hold back, checking Belfour into the boards.
