The 2013-14 season will feature a brand-new divisional realignment that features two seven-team divisions in the Western Conference and two eight-team divisions in the Eastern Conference. The new alignment will place several clubs in more geographically appropriate groupings and will intensify already fierce rivalries throughout the League.

San Jose will compete in the Western Conference's Pacific Division against the Anaheim Ducks, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings, Phoenix Coyotes and Vancouver Canucks.

The Sharks will play a total of 28 games within the division, facing Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, and Los Angeles five times each, and Phoenix and Vancouver four times each. In addition, the Sharks will play a total of 22 games against the Western Conference's Central Division, facing Colorado four times and Chicago, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, St. Louis and Winnipeg three times each.

The remaining 32 games in the 82-game schedule will involve the Sharks playing every opponent in the Eastern Conference a total of two times, once at home and once away, meaning every NHL team will visit SAP Center at San Jose this season.

The Sharks three-way intra-state rivalry continues with the Anaheim Ducks (Nov. 30, Dec. 29, March 20) and the Los Angeles Kings (Nov. 27, Jan. 27, April 3) each making three visits to San Jose.

The Sharks have two season-long five-game road trips from Oct. 22 to Oct. 30 and Nov. 10 to Nov. 17. Immediately following their second road trip, San Jose has a season-high five-game homestand from Nov. 21 to Nov. 30.

Due to the NHL's participation in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the Sharks will have a 19-day break from Feb. 8 until their Feb. 27 game at Philadelphia.

Information on Sharks individual game tickets and a complete broadcast schedule will be released at a later date.
