Hockey time is here

Well, Sharks fans. Its here. Finally. Training camp has opened, physicals have been given, numbers assigned, and now, it all gets underway.

Tonight is the annual Teal & White Game, a season ticket holder event that showcases the entire squad against one another in an evening usually full of fun and autographs.

Tomorrow the Sharks will open their preseason schedule when they head to the Pond to face the Anaheim Ducks (7pm). The very same Ducks will make their first visit of the year to the Tank on Friday (7:30pm), while the Sharks will host Vancouver on Saturday (also 7:30). A back-to-back with the Coyotes next week will see a Los Gatos resident play against his favorite team growing up as Viktor Tikhonov will hopefully be in uniform for Phoenix. The Teal will wrap up the preseason with a trip to Vancouver and a neutral site showdown with the LA Kings in Salt Lake City, Utah.

If you're headed to any of these games, I hope to see you there. Most of these games should be available on the internet, just go to the opponent's respective homepage to find out (teamname.nhl.com)

Hockey's a comin' folks, you ready for it?
