by San Jose Sharks @sanjosesharks / sjsharks.com

San Jose, CA - The San Jose Sharks (@sanjosesharks) earlier this evening unveiled the team's Stealth design highlighted by the new adidas adizero Authentic Pro third jersey.

At a special unveiling that took place during the first intermission of the team's preseason game vs. the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the newest member of the Sharks, two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson (@ErikKarlsson65), unveiled the Stealth Jersey while also being introduced to Sharks Fans for the first time.

For more information about Stealth and the 2018-2019 adidas adizero Authentic Pro third jersey, visit sjsharks.com/stealth.

In collaboration with adidas, the Sharks set out to create an all-new look that pays homage to Northern California, embraces the tech culture of the region, and adds to the predatory nature of Sharks with a sleek new black-on-black look.

Fusing the future with the past, the sleeve stripes feature a digitalized circuit pattern that subtly incorporates a "SJ" pattern, while tonal shoulder patches are a throwback to the original patches worn from 1991-1997. Additional details include "This is Sharks Territory" is emblazoned across the interior neckline.

The San Jose Sharks Stealth Jersey will be available for the first time at Sharks Fan Fest presented by Northern California BMW Centers. Fan Fest will be held tomorrow, on Sunday, September 23, at SAP Center at San Jose starting at 1 p.m. Fan Fest tickets are available at sjsharks.com/fanfest. The jersey will also be available online at shop.nhl.com and adidas.com.

The Stealth design will also be featured on a variety of apparel and merchandise items that will be available throughout the season at the Sharks Store at SAP Center.

Sharks Sign Forward Jake McGrew

by San Jose Sharks @sanjosesharks / sjsharks.com

SAN JOSE, CA - San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) general manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed forward Jake McGrew (@McgrewJake) to a standard, entry-level contract.

"Jake is an exceptional skater who is a threat to shoot from anywhere on the ice," said Wilson. "He always seems to be around the net, ready to outwork his opponent for the puck. The California-born prospect really took his game to the next level during the WHL playoffs last season and carried that into Team USA's World Jr. Selection Camp this summer before a strong showing in both the rookie tournament in Vegas and our NHL Training Camp this month. He has continued to exceed expectations, both on and off the ice, and we have been very impressed with his development under Spokane head coach Dan Lambert."

25 Years of SAP Center

by Mark Purdy @MercPurdy / sjsharks.com

In the beginning, there was Downtown Datsun.

The automobile dealership squatted there for many years on West Santa Clara St., advertising Great Deals Below Sticker Low Monthly Payments Bad Credit No Problem!!!!!! 

Most people drove right past the car lot and exclamation points, barely noticing. 

Except that Tom McEnery did notice. As a high school student en route to Bellarmine Prep, he frequently traversed the West Santa Clara St. and Autumn St. intersection on the gritty edge of downtown San Jose. Much later, from 1983 to 1991, he did so as mayor of the city. 

This explains why, when talk of building a civic sports arena began to heat up during the 1980's, McEnery was ahead of the curve. He had just the location. He knew in his gut it was better than others that had been proposed, in North San Jose adjoining Route 237 or at the county fairgrounds.

"In the 1960s and 1970s, so much of downtown San Jose was cleared out for redevelopment," McEnery now says. "There were blocks full of vacant lots. I had told voters we were going to rebuild it all as an entertainment and business center."

An arena meshed with that master plan. But if you think that McEnery merely snapped his fingers and magically made the vision come true . . . well, you weren't around back then. 

With the building now known as SAP Center celebrating its 25th anniversary, it can be easy to forget that there was a time when San Jose's most popular downtown landmark almost didn't happen at all. Dissenters filed a lawsuit against the plan. A civic referendum was controversial and nearly failed. 

In the end, for the building being constructed, you can primarily thank the 73,409 San Jose citizens who voted "yes" on the arena ballot issue in 1988 -- with no promise of any professional sports team ever occupying the venue. But that is still getting too far ahead of the story. 

And it's one hell of a story, with multiple twists and turns involving toxic waste, a Hollywood producer and an Olympic gold medalist. There were multiple twists and turns. At one point, San Jose's new hockey team was going to be called the "Americans" and wear red, white and blue uniforms. Yes, really.
