SJHN Daily: Sharks Will Wear Pride Night Jerseys, Mukhamadullin on Way to San Jose

It shouldn’t be a big story, but it is.

The San Jose Sharks announced plans for their Mar. 18 Sharks Pride Night, and it includes the players wearing special Pride jerseys, with a logo designed by San Jose native Houyee Chow, a queer artist and educator, during warm-ups.

What should be an NHL norm was turned on its head in January, after Ivan Provorov refused to don a Pride jersey in warm-ups during the Philadelphia Flyers’ Pride night. The New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild then reversed plans to wear special Pride warm-ups during their Pride nights.

Provorov cited his Russian Orthodox religious beliefs, the Rangers claimed “individual right” for their players “to respectfully express their beliefs”, and the Wild said they were worried about the safety of their Russian players.

We’ll see if all the San Jose Sharks players wear Pride jerseys on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, the team kicked off Sharks Pride Night early tonight, with a friendly game at SAP Center between Sharks employees and local LGBTQ+ adult hockey team, the San Francisco Earthquakes.

San Jose Sharks head coach David Quinn was there to meet and greet all the players.
