From Giants Extra:

The Giants have had preliminary discussions with the Sharks and the National Hockey League about bringing a game to the shores of McCovey Cove, team president and CEO Larry Baer said. In the coming months, NHL officials will tour AT&T Park, Levi’s Stadium and Stanford Stadium to determine the best option in the Bay Area, in case the Sharks are awarded a Stadium Series game.

The Sharks are cautiously optimistic that they’ll get a shot at outdoor hockey in 2015.

AT&T Park is generally considered one of the most scenic ballparks in Major League Baseball. Though it can be chilly and windy, the backdrop would certainly make for a compelling view.

    As soon as they spoke about outdoor games besides the classic, this was the venue in mind. I am in no rush for an outdoor game for the Sharks, but I would love to see some of the veterans on the team experience one.

    Gross. I hate that I have to share the Sharks with Giants fans. They’re the worst.

      I hear you, but it’s better than having it at O.Co stadium with the Raider Nation, right??

    That would be a great venue for a game. I hope it happens.
