BlackArmor set to be unveiled on Friday
New Sharks 3rd jersey leaked
11/19/08 - By Mike Lee

The Sharks are set to unveil their new Seagate BlackArmor jerseys on Friday November 21st at 10:00AM in a special ceremony. The Sharks will officially hit the ice in their new sweaters on Saturday night against the Washington Capitals at HP Pavilion. The new 3rd jersey will be worn by the Sharks during their next four home games.

Images of the new black jersey were leaked on early Wednesday. The image reveals the new full body shark logo, which will serve as both the primary crest as well as the shoulder logo.

The shoulder logo also introduces new "SJ" lettering, along with a mini-version of the new fin design that was showcased two summer's ago, when the new logo patterns were introduced.

Teal and white stripes adorn the arms at the elbow, which is the only color you'll see on the jersey other than on the crest, shoulder patches and numbering.

The Sharks will utilize a lace up collar for the first time, following a theme that has become more popular across the NHL. The laces pay tribute to jerseys of the early NHL, providing little functional value to the jersey.

The new sweater also lacks any striping at the bottom, which is a departure from Shark designs of the past. The simple black design looks more like a practice jersey, than game night threads.

San Jose's previous 3rd jersey was also black, but was closer to the primary home and away pattern than the newer design.

Pricing information for the new jersey has yet to be announced, but pro models are expected to fetch the same price as the existing home and away models, which retail in the $290 range.
