GISSV spearheaded the Sharks German Night at the SAP Center in San Jose on March 16, bringing together the Bay Area German community for a fun night of hockey!
Although the San Jose Sharks lost 2-1 in overtime against the Seattle Kraken, GISSV families, staff, and friends had a blast cheering them on together. We even got a visit from Sharkie himself in the group section - and one of the most memorable parts of the night was going on the ice after the game for a group picture!
Thank you to Sharks player Nico Sturm for stopping by to say hello to some lucky attendees. He sent his warm regards to those who missed out on meeting him! As one of the few German-born players in the NHL, Sturm is an inspiration to many members of the Bay Area German community. We all wished him and the Sharks the best of luck for the rest of the season!
What an incredible experience for everyone!
