Sharks are relentless hunters under the water as well as on the ice, and the San Jose Sharks have been tearing through the Western Conference since the team’s founding in 1991. With a cast of characters featuring the likes of Brent Burns, 2017’s James Norris Memorial Trophy winner for best defenseman, a Sharks game is guaranteed to be entertaining. This year’s team is in contention for another trip to the championship, and they have a great shot at hoisting Lord Stanley’s cup. Get your Sharks tickets today before they’re all gone.
The Bay Area’s first NHL hockey team, the California Golden Seals, left town in 1976, which led to 25 years without a professional team. Luckily, the Gund family worked out a deal with the NHL, and the Sharks were born. After a couple unsuccessful years playing at the Cow Palace, the team moved to what is now called the SAP Center at San Jose, and that’s when the winning started. In the 1993–94 season, the team made their first NHL Playoffs appearance with a dramatic upset against the Detroit Red Wings, the favorite to win the Stanley Cup. They went on to lose the next round, but the team established themselves as perennial contenders. Thanks to stars like Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton as well as rivalries with the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks, the Sharks have built up a loyal fan base that is ready to cheer the roof off the arena.
Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski, and Joe Thornton join Brent Burns as they attempt to skate their way into the playoffs for the third year in a row. The Shark Tank is sure to be filled to the rafters with rowdy fans cheering on one of the city’s two major sports team. If you’re a hockey fan visiting San Jose, there’s no better thing to do in the city, so pick up your Sharks tickets before they’re all gone.
