Both Devan Dubnyk and Ryan Donato got pretty cool packages in the mail today.
The newest San Jose Sharks also unveiled the team’s 30th anniversary logo:
For fans clamoring for the return of the original San Jose Sharks logo, the 30th anniversary logo should be a welcome sight.
Dubnyk also thanked Antti Suomela for allowing him to take his customary No. 40. Dubnyk has worn that number throughout his NHL career.
Suomela’s Instagram might clue us in on his new number:
Suomela is wearing No. 14 for HIFK right now and has worn that throughout his Finnish league career.
Meanwhile, Donato’s number will be a first for him.
“I will be switching my number to No. 16. Growing up as a kid, my favorite player was Brett Hull — and still is to this day,” Donato said on Instagram. “I wore it in high school and No. 16 in college. It’s my first time wearing it in the pros, so I’m excited.”
Of course, all this jersey talk is just an appetizer for the main course. In two weeks, Adidas and the NHL are expected to unveil “Reverse Retro” jerseys for every NHL team, including the San Jose Sharks.
