SAN JOSE, CA - The National Hockey League and the San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) today announced the team's complete 2017-18 regular season schedule. 

San Jose will open the 2017-18 season at SAP Center against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wed., Oct. 4. The 2017-18 season features 17 weekend home dates, including Jan. 20 when the 2017 Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins make their only visit to San Jose. San Jose will hit the road for the first time on an East Coast, five-game road trip from Oct. 20-28. The Sharks will face the NHL's newest franchise the Vegas Golden Knights in Las Vegas on Nov. 24. The Golden Knights will make their first appearance at SAP Center on Feb. 8. 

The Sharks will play each NHL opponent at least a total of two times this season, once at home and once on the road, meaning every NHL team will visit SAP Center at San Jose this season. 

Special matinee home games starting at 1 p.m. will be held on March 10 vs. Washington and March 24 vs. Calgary. The Sharks will also host three 5 p.m. games (Dec. 10 vs. Minnesota, Jan. 20 vs. Pittsburgh and Feb. 18 vs. Dallas). 

In addition, the Sharks announced the first of their promotional giveaway schedule for the 2017- 18 NHL season.
