sj practiceToday, the San Jose Sharks announced the start of their training camp along with a full schedule for the month of September. Camp officially opens on September 12th but players are already in the area to participate in captain’s practices. Some rookies and prospects will also be participating in the Young Stars Classic in Penticon, BC. For full details about that tournament, which kicks off tomorrow, September 5th, see our previous article here.

For training camp, the players attending will be split into two different groups. The details about who is part of each group will be released at a later date. On September 13th and 14th, those groups will be facing off against each other in a scrimmage set to start at about 9:50am at the South Rink of Sharks Ice. Most practices (and both scrimmages) will be open to the public.

Training camp during the month of September is also highlighted by 6 preseason games. The Sharks will face off against Vancouver, Anaheim, and Phoenix. They will play each team once at home and once away. The full schedule of practices, scrimmages, and preseason games is available here.

A New England girl, born and raised, Jessica Higham has grown up loving few things more than hockey. Although she has never considered herself to be a good skater, she fell in love with hockey back when boys still had cooties and that love has only grown since. She genuinely wishes she had been alive to enjoy ‘Miracle on Ice’ and considers it to be one of the greatest moments in US history. Nothing compares to the feeling of September coming and signaling the start of a new season, complete with a whole new set of ups and downs. After having been an avid reader and occasional writer, Jessica wanted to try putting the two loves together and writing about hockey. Aside from hockey, Jessica also loves music, going to concerts, animals, and walking on the beach. Email: @JessicaHigham
