San Jose Sharks president Jonathan Becher took the team’s case to city council on Monday — here’s what he said:
Some more details about the San Jose Sharks team plane being used by the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris campaign, including where the president-elect sat — which Shark will take his seat?
Finally, the Locked on Sharks boys rank San Jose’s Reverse Retro jerseys against other jerseys from the team’s history.
In other San Jose Sharks news…
Instead of the San Jose Sharks wearing four jerseys — my expectation after Monday night’s chat with VP of marketing Doug Bentz — Becher teases…SIX? Current home and away, Heritage home and away, Stealth, and Reverse Retro, anybody? Or maybe Becher didn’t want to make the guessing game too easy for us??
Or maybe 6? #SJSharks

Around the NHL…
The NHL wants players to defer even more money to get the 2020-21 season going:
With @NYP_Brooksie reporting deferral ask is up to 23% total, there are 26 players who cannot defer 23% of comp this season even if all of their salary is deferred. This is due to large signing bonuses.
