SAN JOSE, CA (Oct. 12, 2021) – The San Jose Sharks (@SanJoseSharks) today announced their complete broadcast schedule for the 2021-22 NHL season, which can be found here.
For the second consecutive season, all regular season and playoff games will be carried live on the Sharks Audio Network.

Remenda will also be prominently featured on the Sharks Audio Network, with a new 30-minute show every two weeks, featuring Sharks and NHL hockey talk, along with special guests. Randy Hahn (@sharkvoice) and Hedican will also be contributors to the network.
In addition, Ted Ramey (@TedRameyMedia), who has served as the host of “Morning Tide” for the last three seasons, will return as a major contributor to Sharks Audio Network programming.
