On Mon., Nov. 15 prior to the Sharks/Los Angeles Kings game, all San Jose Sharks players wore special festive Thanksgiving-themed jerseys during the morning skate at HP Pavilion.
The jerseys will be autographed by the respective players and sold via blind auction at the Sharks Foundation booth, located on the Concourse level adjacent to the Section 124 entrance during the Sharks vs. Columbus Blue Jackets game on Sat., Nov. 20 and the Sharks vs. Chicago Blackhawks game on Wed., Nov. 24.
SJ Sharkie will also be auctioning his autographed Thanksgiving-themed jersey with his name on the back to help support the Sharks Foundation. Sharkie's jersey will be available on Saturday, Nov 20.
In the past, the jerseys were only sold via the in-game auction requiring fans to be present in order to participate. However, new for this year, fans who are not in attendance on November 20 and 24 will still have a chance to bid on three Thanksgiving-themed practice jerseys via NHL.com (Murray #3, Heatley #15 and Setoguchi #16).
The Sharks Foundation will be hosting an online auction beginning on Sat., Nov. 20 and ending on Sat., Nov. 27. Fans can access the auction by visiting:http://auction.nhl.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/User?id=sanNHL&wl=12717464&type=L.
All proceeds will benefit the Sharks Foundation in assisting local non-profit organizations in the San Jose area.
