According to The Fourth Period’s David Pagnotta, the San Jose Sharks are planning to hold their training camp in Arizona and it is “very possible” that they will play their home games at Gila River Arena in Glendale, home of the Arizona Coyotes, to start the season. There is a pro sports ban in the Santa Clara area due to COVID-19.

The NFL’s San Francisco 49ers are currently playing their home games at State Farm Field in Glendale, home of the Arizona Cardinals, due to local restrictions.

The Sharks and Coyotes are slated to play together in the Pacific Division as part of the NHL’s realignment plan for the upcoming season, which is slated to begin on Wednesday, January 13 pending approval from the NHLPA. A vote is expected to occur on Sunday or Monday.

The ban in the Santa Clara area is currently in effect until Friday, January 8 but there is a strong belief locally that it will be extended.
