NHL reschedules 4 Sharks games
February dates replace Olympic break
1/19/2022 - By Mike Lee

The NHL announced schedule changes for four Sharks games on Tuesday. Three of the games were originally scheduled for last December, but were postponed as a result of the COVID restrictions that were implemented by the Canadian Government in response to the Omnicron variant.

The Sharks will eliminate a back-to-back game in April versus Vegas, moving that game to the schedule gap in February which was created when the NHL backed out of the Winter Olympics.

The revised schedule is as follows:

2/14 Mon EDMONTON OILERS (was 12/21) 7:30pm
2/17 Thu VANCOUVER CANUCKS (was 12/23) 7:30pm
2/20 Sun VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS (was 4/10) 5:00pm
2/22 Tue @ Anaheim Ducks (was 12/27) 7:00pm


The change means the Sharks will play 6 of the 8 games scheduled for February at home. They also receive a little relief from a heavy schedule in April, which originally had them playing 16 games in the month. That is reduced by one game.

It's likely the Sharks would have preferred to have ore April games moved to Febraury, as the 8 game schedule will force them to keep everyone in game shape over the 28 day period. It does provide an opportunity for the Sharks to get healthy with the light load. They currently have five players out due to a variety of malidies.
