The San Jose Sharks and NBC Sports California have unveiled their 2021-22 TV coverage plans.
NBC Sports California is scheduled to carry 74 of the team’s 82 regular season games. The other eight games will air exclusively on ESPN or ESPN+/Hulu.
These eight ESPN/ESPN+/Hulu exclusive games are as follows:
• Oct. 26 at Nashville, Nov. 2 vs. Buffalo, Nov. 30 at New Jersey, Dec. 28 vs. Arizona, Jan. 11 vs. Detroit, March 15 vs. Florida, and March 17 at Los Angeles on ESPN+/Hulu
• April 21 vs. St. Louis on ESPN
You can see the full TV schedule here.
The 74 NBC Sports California broadcasts will be streamed live on the MyTeams app and NBCSportsCalifornia.com. This includes live pregame and postgame coverage.
You will also be able to view these games on ESPN+.
Of note: Long-time Sharks broadcaster Drew Remenda is returning to the TV side, doing pregame coverage. He will also provide occasional color with Randy Hahn on NBC Sports California and with Dan Rusanowsky on the Sharks Audio Network.
Also joining Remenda? San Jose Sharks fan favorite Dan Boyle will be making his TV debut on Sharks Pregame Live. Boyle should make his debut in mid-November.
“It’s been five years since my retirement,” Boyle told San Jose Hockey Now, before joking, “My kids don’t want to hang out with me anymore.”
He added: “I miss the camaraderie of being on a team and although this isn’t hockey team, it’s still part of being a broadcast team and I enjoy those guys. The Sharks were good to me and if people want to hear a fresh take on things, I’m not opposed to sharing that.”
Boyle recently appeared on the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast, and based on that, he should add a distinctive wit and candor to the broadcast:
Both Remenda and Boyle will be joining stalwarts Brodie Brazil and Curtis Brown on pre- and postgame coverage.
Up top, Hahn will call games primarily with Bret Hedican on NBC Sports California. Remenda will guest for Hedican on occasion.
On the Sharks Audio Network, Rusanowsky will call games next to Scott Hannan, Mark Smith, Remenda, and Hedican.
Remenda will also have his own bi-weekly show on the Sharks Audio Network, joining Ted Ramey’s “Morning Tide” on the network. “Morning Tide” is heard after every San Jose Sharks game.
