Sharks to host Kings at Levi’s Stadium on Feb. 21

What better day than San Jose Sharks day on PHT for the NHL to make the speculation official — the Sharks will host the Los Angeles Kings in an outdoor game on Saturday, Feb. 21, 2015.

The evening game (7 p.m. ET) will be played at the brand new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, home of the San Francisco 49ers. Which may, admittedly, be a disappointment for those who’d hoped it would be held at picturesque AT&T Park, the home of the San Francisco Giants. But the larger capacity of the football stadium (approx. 70,000) compared to the baseball park (approx. 40,000) likely played a role in the decision.

“This event celebrates the growth of the great game of hockey in San Jose and recognizes the incredible support and passion of Sharks fans all over Northern California,” said John Tortora, the Sharks’ COO. “We know our fans will bring the electrifying atmosphere of SAP Center at San Jose to Levi’s Stadium on Feb. 21 and we are looking forward to showcasing Sharks Territory outside and under the lights.”

The game will be broadcast by NBCSN and Hockey Night in Canada.
