Congratulations to Jody Shelley on his firstborn son, Owen William Shelley!

The following is cut and pasted from the Sharks webpage:

It looks like McLellan may field a full lineup on Saturday against Dallas. Marcel Goc is close to returning and Jody Shelley will be back following the birth of his first child.

“Everyone is doing great,” said Shelley of mother and child. “It’s a special thing.”

The full name of his newborn is Owen William Shelley and both names have something of a tie-in. William is his wife’s father’s middle name and they simply liked Owen, mostly due to knowing New York Islanders center Mike Sillinger’s son of the same name.

Thursday was a long day for the Shelley family and the new father actually considered playing after the birth, which happened just before Noon.

“I wanted to get back last night, but I was running out of steam,” Shelley said. “I went home last night and woke up at six and couldn’t wait to get back to the hospital.”

Congratulations, Jody and Mrs. Shelley!
