Twas 'Cuda Christmas at SAP Center on Saturday, and the San Jose Barracuda of the American Hockey League made sure to wear their ugly sweaters to mark the occasion.

The San Jose Sharks' AHL affiliate wore Santa Claus-suit jerseys, complete with faux fur and a faux belt, that had a Barracuda twist for its game against Bakersfield on Saturday.

Santa Claus himself even stopped by the Tank to take in the game and undoubtedly compare the Barracuda's jerseys with his own suit.

The jerseys delivered good luck to the Barracuda and goalie Troy Grosenick -- or Troy St. Nick, perhaps? -- who pitched his third straight shutout in a 5-0 victory. The jerseys were auctioned off with proceeds benefiting Salvation Army.
