Discovery's 'Shark Week' hopes to enchant and thrill viewers

  Discovery's 'Shark Week' hopes to enchant and thrill viewers NEW YORK (AP) — If you think you're safe avoiding sharks by simply staying out of the water, think again. A few species of epaulette sharks have evolved to move their pectoral fins in the front and pelvic fins in the back to plod along outside the water at low tide. Just to be perfectly clear: That's on land. Relax, none are going to chase you home. They're just wriggling. “They’re not sprinting. There are no ankle-biters coming to get anybody. It’s just this fascinating behavior taking place,” says wildlife conservationist and biologist Forrest Galante.

"As a little boy skating on a frozen pond, my dream was to play in the NHL," Marleau said in the Sharks' press release. "Never could I have imagined the honor of my jersey hanging in the rafters above the very ice that I played so many of my NHL games on. I cannot begin to describe the way I feel. I am truly grateful and thankful for this recognition, but also for being able to play in front of the great San Jose Sharks fans for so long. I'll miss doing so for the rest of my life. Thank you to the Sharks organization, my teammates throughout my career, and especially the fans for this honor of a lifetime. I can't wait to see you all on Feb. 25."

Selected No. 2 overall in the 1997 NHL Draft, Marleau spent 21 seasons in San Jose, playing 1,607 of his 1,779 career games wearing the Sharks' black and teal.
