Erik Karlsson made his San Jose Sharks debut Saturday night in a preseason game against the Vegas Golden Knights. But when he hit the ice, he wasn’t decked out in the expected Pacific teal. He was wearing the new black “stealth mode” jersey instead.
“It looks great,” Karlsson said. “You know, for me, it’s a weird feeling, obviously, to put on a brand new jersey, but I’m super excited for it, and I’m proud to be able to stand here today and show you this third jersey. I think it looks awesome.”

The Senators traded their captain and star defenseman over the summer, but Karlsson sounded optimistic about his team change.
“I’m excited to come to a good team, a good crowd, a good fanbase,” he said before the game. “I’m excited to start something new.”
Karlsson smiled and clapped while skating around the ice, making sure the fans could fully appreciate the new look.
The new third jerseys will be available to purchase at the Sharks fanfest on Sunday.
