2021-22 Sharks Schedule Revealed

Published

on

The NHL has released its 2021-22 schedule.

The league plans to return to an 82-game season after abbreviated 2019-20 and 2020-21 campaigns.

The San Jose Sharks will open the season on Oct. 16 against Winnipeg at SAP Center.

Other key dates for the San Jose Sharks and the rest of the NHL?

There is, at the moment, an Olympic break in the schedule.

The NHL’s participation in the 2022 Winter Olympics at Beijing isn’t finalized yet. The NHL has also made a back-up 2021-22 schedule without an Olympic break.

The 2022 All-Star Game in Las Vegas is scheduled for Feb. 5. This segues into the Olympics; the NHL is scheduled to be off for the Olympics until Feb. 23.

The expansion Seattle Kraken open play against the Vegas Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena on Oct. 12. That will also be the opening night of the NHL season. The Kraken make their Seattle debut at Climate Pledge Arena on Oct. 23 versus the nearby Vancouver Canucks.

Per San Jose Sharks PR, here are some key dates: Following the home opener, “the team will hit the road for five games, before returning to SAP Center on Oct. 28 to host the 2021 Stanley Cup runner-up Montreal Canadiens.

“The Sharks’ longest homestand is seven games, when the team will host Calgary, Minnesota, Dallas, Seattle, Vancouver (twice) and Edmonton Dec. 7 through Dec. 23. The team also has a five-game homestand (Oct. 28-Nov. 6) and two four-game homestands (Nov. 20-Nov. 26 and Jan. 11-17).

“The Sharks have three, season-long five game road trips, which also constitute the team’s first three journeys away from SAP Center during the 2021-22 season: Oct. 19-Oct. 26; Nov. 9-Nov. 18; Nov. 28-Dec. 5.”

San Jose’s first-ever game against Seattle won’t be until Dec. 14 at SAP Center. They visit Climate Pledge Arena for the first time on Jan. 20.

The Sharks start the season with 15 of 25 games on the road.

Here’s the full San Jose Sharks schedule:

so I guess they decided to not continue the 2 game series for less travel like originally rumored

timorous me

That is quite the bizarre opening to the season. Seeing Winnipeg and Montreal twice within the first two weeks, especially. I’ll be really glad to have the variety of the full slate of opponents, though. And there’s an outside chance I’ll be in Pittsburgh on Jan. 2. Might have to make that happen (I moved away before the new building opened–the Igloo was not exactly a modern marvel on the inside, but you could get tickets cheap as a student!).
