There is no need to rely on second hand information when you can instantly find out more about the San Jose Sharks with Apple apps. The San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California, United States. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League. They play their home games at the HP Pavilion at San Jose, known locally as the Shark Tank.

On May 5, 1990, the Gunds officially sold their share of the North Stars to Baldwin and were awarded a new team for the Bay Area, based in San Jose. Over 5,000 potential names were submitted by mail for the new team. While the first-place finisher was “Blades,” the Gunds were concerned about the name’s potentially negative association with weapons, and went with the runner-up, “Sharks.” The name was said to have been inspired by the large number of sharks living in the Pacific Ocean. Seven different varieties live there, and one area of water near the Bay Area is known as the “red triangle” because of its shark population. The team’s first marketing head, Matt Levine, said of the new name, “Sharks are relentless, determined, swift, agile, bright and fearless. We plan to build an organization that has all those qualities.” With that in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to show the fans some informative apps on the San Jose Sharks.
