Sharks president gives funny response to fake jersey design originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
No, those won't be the Sharks' new alternate uniforms for next season.
Toronto hockey writer Howard Berger shared a photo on social media showing what appeared to be a throwback uniform design for San Jose, paying homage to the now-defunct California Seals.
This, apparently, will be the @SanJoseSharks third jersey next season. A nice touch - replica of the California Seals uniforms in their final two #NHL seasons: 1974-75 and 1975-76. pic.twitter.com/50fWHIMA8q

Sharks president Jonathan Becher shut down the rumors Thursday morning, indicating that none of the circulating jersey designs on social media are in fact legitimate.
Entertained by the alternate jerseys designs on social media labeled as based on inside info. We have creative fans! None of these designs are real

San Jose currently has three uniforms in rotation, with teal, white and "stealth" black designs available.
The California Seals played in Oakland from 1967-1976, before moving to Cleveland and folding just two years later.
