The San Jose Sharks are one of the newest professional hockey franchises in the country, having been established as an expansion team in the city in 1991. Though the team is new, they actually began their first season playing in a stadium occupied by the former California Golden Seals. That team had recently moved to a new city, and the stadium was ripe for use by a new arrival. The Sharks would move to several new venues over the next decade, and it would take them the entirety of their first decade of play in California to earn the first-ever bid in the post season.
The Sharks' first stab at a Stanley Cup came during the 2001-2002 season, when the team overcame long odds and won its first division title. Though the Sharks didn't make their way to a conference championship or national title, they did end up winning an impressive five more division championships through the end of the 2010-2011 season. That record has given local fans hope that perhaps the team will make its way to the big dance sometime during the present decade. As they await their moment in the Stanley Cup spotlight, fans of this San Jose hockey team eagerly buy new jerseys, great collectibles, and apparel that helps them bide their time.
It's Time for a San Jose Sharks Jersey
Though the Sharks have been playing in San Jose for more than two decades, the team's name remains relatively unknown outside of the immediate media market where home games are played. Even so, that doesn't mean fans shouldn't treat themselves to some great Sharks gear or discover this relatively new arrival to professional hockey. FansEdge.com makes all of that happen with our extensive lineup of Sharks replica jerseys. Those new to the team will want to stock up on a home or away jersey design, while those who already own more standard jerseys might want to check out our camo, premier, and alternate jersey designs with differing Sharks logo marks imprinted.
