San Jose Sharks


1991-97
The San Jose Sharks introduce teal to the NHL's color palette in 1991.


1997-98
The Sharks introduce an alternate jersey in the 1997-98 season, featuring a slightly darker shade of teal. Originally, the names were straight and were trimmed in black. They proved to be very hard to see, and they were quickly changed to a single-color, arched format.


1998-2001
The alternate jersey from the previous season becomes the basis of the team's new home jersey, and the alternate becomes the new full-time road jersey.


2001-07
The Sharks introduce a new black alternate jersey.


2007-08
The Sharks redesign their uniforms when the Reebok Edge uniform system is introduced. The new uniforms feature orange trim and a number placed on the upper right chest.


2008-13
The Sharks introduce a new black alternate jersey, devoid of orange (except in the crest).


2013-15
The Sharks simplify their uniforms, saying fewer elements make for a lighter jersey, thus improving on-ice performance.


2015-17
To mark their 25th anniversary, the Sharks replaced their front numbers with an anniversary patch. When the patch was removed the following season, the front numbers did not return.


2017-18, 2021-present
When the league transitioned to the Adidas Adizero uniform system, the Sharks replaced their shoulder patches with alternate logos introduced a year earlier (but had not been incorporated into any of their jerseys), using different alternate logos for their home and road jerseys.


2018-20
The Sharks introduce a new black "Stealth" alternate uniform, featuring a subtle circuit board pattern between the two teal sleeve stripes.
