Patrick Marleau will be back in a San Jose Sharks jersey.
Likely Owen Nolan, Mike Grier, Evgeni Nabokov, Mike Ricci, Dany Heatley, Scott Thornton, and Joel Ward too.
No, this isn’t the NHL on OLN.
The San Jose Sharks announced today, in conjunction with the Sharks Alumni Foundation, that there will be a Sharks Legends Game at Tech CU Arena on Feb. 24 at 7:30 PM. This event is part of festivities that will culminate in Marleau’s jersey retirement on Feb. 25 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Marleau’s No. 12 will be the first jersey retirement in franchise history.
Sharks and NHL alumni expected to attended the weekend’s events include Curtis Brown, Ryane Clowe, Adam Graves, Grier, Scott Hannan, Heatley, Bret Hedican, Shawn Heins, Kelly Hrudey, Nabokov, Nolan, Scott Parker, Tom Pederson, Ricci, Scott Thornton, Devin Setoguchi, Mark Smith, Ward, and Tommy Wingels. We’ll see if they’ll also play in the alumni tilt, I would expect most will.
This isn’t a final participating alumni list either.
Per the San Jose Sharks, “Sharks365 and The Battery members will have an exclusive pre-sale window to purchase $25 tickets for the event, beginning on Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.
“Tickets for the general public are $35 and will go on sale on Fri., Jan. 20. A limited number of VIP tickets will also be available for purchase, which will include a premium ticket location, food & beverage throughout the game, as well as a post-game reception with the Sharks Legends.
“All net proceeds will be donated to The Sharks Foundation and the Sharks Alumni Foundation.”
