Sharks’ Reverse Retro Jersey Ideas



The NHL has announced the return of reverse retro jerseys for the 2022-23 season.

While the NHL has been without reverse retro jerseys for just under an entire season, next season should be seeing all-new designs for each of the league’s 32 teams. Last season, the San Jose Sharks used a version of their 1998-2007 kit, but what could fans of the team in teal see this fall?

While the rumors of a California Golden Seals-inspired jersey were debunked in late 2020, Sharks fans everywhere were excited by the idea. Perhaps we see them become a reality in just a few months.

Sheng’s Daily: It’s a Trap!

While the baby teal and yellow wordmark design has been the frontrunner among fans, the 1967-69 Oakland Seals sweater also deserves a look. The different colors for the back and shoulder numbers. The green and blue stripes. The tie-down neck. Everything about that jersey would do well with a reverse retro update.

However, the Sharks have yet to have a white specialty jersey made to be worn outside of warm-ups. If they were to take the inaugural white road Sharks jerseys from 1991, keep the teal sleeves, and make some updates, the team could have something special on their hands.

With so many possibilities, the San Jose Sharks organization will undoubtedly be in some gorgeous threads in the coming season.
