On Saturday, April 7 at 1 p.m. the San Jose Sharks will conclude their regular season schedule at HP Pavilion with HP Fan Appreciation Day. In addition to watching the final regular season Sharks game vs. the Vancouver Canucks, all fans in attendance will receive a commemorative Sharks playoff T-shirt courtesy of HP and fans will have the opportunity to win jerseys off the player’s backs, along with other Sharks prizes and merchandise throughout the game.
In honor of HP Fan Appreciation Day, HP and Best Buy are teaming up for a special offer for fans in attendance at the game. Fans can bring their ticket from the April 7 game to any of the 10 participating Best Buy stores and receive a free Sharks Authentic Reebok Jersey when they purchase any in-stock model HP LCD or Plasma television between April 8th and April 22nd. This offer is only good to the first 100 purchasers. Participating Best Buy locations are San Carlos, San Francisco (2 locations), Colma, East Palo Alto, Santana Row, Blossom Hill, Milpitas, Mountain View and Sunnyvale.
In addition, the Sharks will announce the recipients of the three major regular season player awards -- Seagate Technology “Sharks Player of the Year” award,” “PlayStation Three Stars of the Game” award and “PlayStation Rookie of the Year” award. Each award will be given to the winning Sharks player in a special ceremony that evening. Both Seagate Technology and PlayStation will make a contribution to The Sharks Foundation on behalf of the winning players.
Also, the “HP Fan Photo of the Year” recipient will be announced from the six monthly contest winners as voted on by Sharks fans via an in-arena text messaging promotion. The winner of the “HP Fan Photo of the Year” will be awarded a 37-inch HP MediaSmart High Definition LCD television.
At the conclusion of the game, several randomly selected Sharks fans will be brought onto the ice where they will receive authentic game worn Sharks jerseys from each of the Sharks players. Each player will greet their fan, autograph their jersey and hand it to the lucky winner.
