by Staff Writer / San Jose Sharks

The San Jose Sharks are kicking-off the opening month of the 2005-06 NHL Hockey season with a bang by launching an unprecedented and exciting series of events entitled the "10 Days of Hockey."

 

The 10-days of Hockey is a collection of fan-friendly and community-minded events designed to create awareness for and generate excitement for the return of NHL hockey to San Jose.  The NHL season kicks off on Oct. 5 and for the first time in history all 30 NHL clubs will be playing on the same night, with the Sharks opening their season on the road by visiting Nashville.

 

The "10 Days of Hockey" commences on Monday, Oct. 3 and culminates on Wednesday, Oct. 12 with the Sharks Home Opening game vs. the Columbus Blue Jackets at HP Pavilion.

 

Events range from Away Game Viewing Parties, to a Family Skate Night at Logitech Ice, to Online Trivia, to Sharks Community Day at MACSA Youth Center to the ever-popular annual event, "Chomp Day."
