Sharks Pay Tribute to Mike Hoffman Who Was Member of Team for Few Hours

Some people truly leave their mark on history -- or a team. That especially goes for Mike Hoffman's "historic" run with San Jose.

He, of course, spent just a few hours as a member of the Sharks, so some fans wanted to make sure his memory was still holding strong by creating a banner for him while he was in town.

The 29-year-old appeared to love the idea -- he posted it to his Instagram story saying how funny it was:

Hoffman, after those three hours as a member of the Sharks, was traded to the Florida Panthers last year on June 19 for four Draft selections.

The Sharks hosted the Panthers on Thursday but fell short in a 4-2 loss. This snapped a winning streak for San Jose with Hoffman having himself a successful night.

Hoffman told the Associated Press' Josh Dubow how much the banner meant to him during the "reunion."

"I saw that, he said. "I appreciate the respect for the fans there. I'll try to reach out and contact the fan to get that from him."

That's great, but it has you wondering -- where would he put it?

Either way, it was nice to see the fans pay tribute to a guy who appeared to make such a huge impact on the team. And I'm glad Hoffman had a good sense of humor about it.
