SAN JOSE, Calif. –The San Jose Sharks today announced that Canadian Solar Inc., a leading vertically integrated provider of ingot, wafer, solar cell, solar module and other solar applications, will serve as the presenting sponsor for the team’s 2010 playoff campaign. With U.S. headquarters in San Ramon, Calif., Canadian Solar is the perfect partner for Northern California’s championship hockey team.
The Sharks clinched a berth in the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs by virtue of their 3-0 win over the Dallas Stars on March 26, 2010. The Sharks currently sit in first place in the Western Conference. The Stanley Cup Playoffs are expected to begin on April 14 or April 15, 2010, and game dates, times, locations and opponents will be determined at a later date.
