SAN JOSE FORCED TO CONTINUE TO PLAY HOME GAMES IN ALTERNATE SITE

The San Jose Sharks road trip will continue for a little longer than they were hoping for. Due to a ban on contact sports in Santa Clara County, the San Jose Sharks will play their first two home games of the season in Arizona at Gila River Arena.

Those two games will be played on February 1st and 3rd against the Vegas Golden Knights. Although the Arizona Coyotes have been allowed to host fans in a limited capacity, there hasn't been a determination if the Sharks will be allowed.

"We feel that we have put significant precautions in place, including daily COVID-19 testing of the athletes and support staff, to allow for us to safely return to play games at SAP Center, while not exposing the community to any additional health risk," said Sharks president Jonathan Becher. "In our discussions with County officials over the past several months, we have shared our detailed return-to-play plans and are hopeful that we can find practical solutions to this difficult situation very soon."

The NHL front loaded the Sharks schedule with away games to allow for the possibility that they would be allowed to play in their own arena come February. After the game on February 3rd, San Jose will embark on a four-game road trip with two games in Anaheim, followed by two games in Los Angeles.

The earliest the Sharks can possibly play at the SAP Center in San Jose will be Saturday February 13th against the Anaheim Ducks. An update will be announced in the coming weeks where that game will be held, as talks are ongoing with Santa Clara County health officials.
