WATN: Patrick Sharp on Fire in Chicago


Patrick Sharp never became a household name in Philadelphia, though most Flyers fans likely remember the time he spent between the big club and the Phantoms a few years ago. Sharp was a key member of the Phantoms' 2004-2005 Calder Cup win, but he never stuck for long on the ice for the Flyers. In late 2005, he was traded along with Eric Meloche to the Blackhawks for Matt Ellison.

Last season, the Thunder Bay native played in 80 games for Chicago and put up a 20-goal, 35-point season for the 'Hawks, and he's already surpassed those totals this season. Sharp's 22 goals and 36 points were recognized with the club, who signed him to a 4-year, $15.6m contract extension. Of course, the Flyers are doing just fine without him this season, so I guess we can just be happy for his success elsewhere.

Also, WATN: Rob Ramage. Unfortunate situation.
