SHARKS TO FACE BRENT BURNS AND THE CANES

The San Jose Sharks are set for their 2022-23 NHL season home opener this Friday against the Carolina Hurricanes.


The first game at the Tank will feature a finished scoreboard, a fanny pack giveaway, and the return of Brent Burns - in Carolina Red.


The San Jose Sharks parted ways with the Norris-Trophy-winning defenseman this summer when Burns and General Manager Mike Grier had talked and agreed to pursue a trade.



Brent Burns spent the last 11 years in San Jose and will play his first career game as a Hurricane Wednesday, October 12th against the Columbus Blue Jackets, just two nights before his return to the Shark Tank.
