While the overall design of the teal and white jerseys will appear the same, continuing to resemble the jersey's worn by the Sharks, the new modern looking SJ logo that features an aggressive Barracuda holding a hockey stick while its tail interlocks with a sleek SJ in the background. The design is slightly altered from the team's logo used on its orange third jerseys that were worn over the clubs first three seasons in San Jose.
Incorporating the city of San Jose's initials in the new primary logo was a major point of focus for the organization and another step towards growing the American Hockey League in the Bay Area and interconnecting the surrounding areas and its hockey teams.
