Preseason Split-Squad Action Against the Canucks

by Patrick Hooper / San Jose Sharks

Tonight, Sharks hockey makes a return, albeit in preseason action occurring simultaneously in two different countries. San Jose will send two separate squads into action, a team north of the border to battle the Canucks in Vancouver and a squad just up the Bay and across the 580 to host Vancouver at Stockton Arena.

Sharks vs Canucks in Stockton at 7:30 p.m.

The game in Stockton, California will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will not be broadcast on television or radio. But good news! Great seats are still available to see the action live and can be secured at ticketmaster.com/sanjosesharks or at the box office of the arena. S.J. Sharkie and other Sharks personalities will be on hand to ensure Sharks Territory is in full force. In fact, the fish and his two pals arrived in Stockton early this morning.
