Senators’ Cheechoo, Michalek Excited About Return To San Jose

Posted by TheHockeyGuy on November 30th, 2009

Before they joined the Ottawa Senators in the Dany Heatley trade, Jonathan Cheechoo and Milan Michalek knew only one National Hockey League team: the San Jose Sharks.

So it was not without a little nervousness that the two of them touched down in California on Sunday, almost three months after the trade. They don’t know what awaits them, how they will be greeted and how they in turn will react. It’s always tough to go home.

Both were drafted by the Sharks — Cheechoo in 1998 (second round, 29th overall), Michalek in 2003 (first round, sixth overall) — and had their most productive seasons, so far, in San Jose. Cheechoo led the league in goals with 56 in 2005-06, while Michalek had a career high 26 goals and 40 assists in 2006-07.

On the personal side, both still own houses in San Jose and plan to keep them (at least until the real-estate market gets considerably better), and Cheechoo’s wife, Ashley, is from San Jose.

Both players are looking forward to Tuesday’s game, even if they know there’s danger in getting too pumped up.
