Opening the season at the Tank.

NHL: Stanley Cup Final-Pittsburgh Penguins at San Jose Sharks Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After beginning the season on the road in both 2015 and 2014, the Sharks finally get the chance to open up a season at SAP Center. On Wednesday, Oct. 12 San Jose will host the Los Angeles Kings at the Shark Tank.

The Sharks will get to raise their Western Conference Champions banner with their rivals on the ice, which will serve as lukewarm revenge for ... well, never mind. The schedule will be released in its entirety at 10 a.m. PDT on Tuesday and we’ll have it for you as soon as it goes up.
