The wait is over.
After a furious week of leaks and speculation, San Jose Hockey Now can confirm, via multiple sources, that the new San Jose Sharks home and away jerseys will be officially unveiled at an event for cardholders. Sharks365 subscriptions this Wednesday evening around 7 p.m. PT.
SJHN understands that this will be a full jersey reveal, which means we’ll also learn if the Sharks plan to pair teal or black pants with their new teal home jerseys. It’s been a source of heated debate since the first images of the new Sharks jerseys were leaked last week:
REPORT: Sharks switch jerseys in 2023-24?
I believe the San Jose Sharks are going all teal with their home kits, pants included, but I haven’t been able to confirm that yet.
“Equipment with the teal uniform could be black,” noted icethetics, a hockey design insider.
Ali Murji, who leaked the first image of the Sharks’ potential new shirts, initially reported they were for the 2023-24 campaign, but throughout the past week a feeling has emerged that the name change was actually destined for the upcoming season. Icethetics was the first to suggest this, and SJHN was able to corroborate:

The timing was essentially confirmed when a local hockey store began selling new Sharks jerseys on Thursday.
