Scored 100 goals and recorded 124 assists in 165 games for the Windsor Spitfires. Captained the Spitfires to the Memorial Cup Finals in 1988.

Was drafted 22nd overall in the 1986 Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings. Made his NHL debut for the Detroit Red Wings on October 9, 1987 vs Edmonton. Recorded his first NHL point on October 23rd vs Pittsburg, on an assist to former Shark Shawn Burr.

Was traded to Edmonton on November 2, 1989. Went on to score five goals and six assists in 22 games during the Oilers Stanley Cup triumph in 1990. Had a slow start to his 1990-91 season, ending up recording only 25 points (7 goals, 18 assists), but 18 of those points were recorded in the second half of the season.

Signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers on September 3, 1991. Doubled his point production from the previous year, scoring 26 goals and recording 33 assists. Recorded a career high four assists in a game vs San Jose on March 19, 1993.

Broke Vic Hadfield's 22 year old team record for goals in a season in 1994 by tallying a career best 52. Also set a career record for points (79). Scored a goal in Game 7 of the Rangers Cup clinching win over Vancouver, and assisted on Mark Messier's game winning goal.

Has appeared in every regular season game in six seasons (1992-93, 1993-94, 1995-96, 1996-97, 1998-89, 2000-01). New York Rangers all time records - 10th in points (507), 9th in games played (772), 3rd in goals (280), 8th in penalty minutes (810),

Adam's nickname is "Gravey"

Graves is known for his ability to lead, and will revive his own teammates during lack luster performances. Has scored a majority of his goals in front of the net. Will capitalize on defelections and rebounds.

Should set the perfect example for the Sharks stable of young forwards. Don't look for a booming shot, because he doesn't posses one. Will see plenty of time on special teams. Is an intelligent penalty killer.
