On March 8, I sent a tweet to Worcester Sharks forward Dan DaSilva {@wsharksdasilva}, asking him if he wouldn’t mind answering 20 questions for this week’s installment of “Just Asking.”  Not only did Mr. DaSilva tweet back “Sure Jon, I’d be happy to do it,” but he also tweeted me his email address so I could send him the questions, which he quickly responded to.  I would like to thank Mr. DaSilva for responding as quickly as he did and wish him the best as the Sharks battle it out for the last guaranteed playoff spot in the Atlantic Division of the AHL Eastern Conference.  To date, DaSilva has 34 points {14 goals, 20 assists} in 68 games with the Sharks this season.
