Rare team matchups

Recommended Posts

Again, no pics, but the San Jose Sharks and Hartford Whalers met three times in the 1991-92 season; the only season that the first-year Sharks met the Whalers in their mostly-green set. The Whalers would change their uniform the next year.

Christmas Devils vs the "Big V" Canucks

Only happened 6 times between 1982 (when Devils came into existence) and 1985 (when the Canucks went to the motion skate logo).

^ Thanks for the pic. :) The Sharks also played a few games in 1991-92 against the Ballard-era Maple Leafs; as with the Devils and Whalers, they altered their set the following season.

I can't find a picture, but the Lighting played the North Stars in the first and last year of the respective teams

Here you go:

That's a great looking matchup in spite of Tampa's awful primary logo and poor number font choice.

Did the Old N logo North Stars ever play the Sharks?

Nope. The final year of that logo was the last season pre-San Jose Sharks.

Damn would've been a nice looking game.

Damn would've been a nice looking game.

the strange part is that many of the "N" North Stars actually became the Sharks. The teams first matchup looked like this:

I was gonna make a joke about the Cubs and World Series teams but it never sounded right, please ignore this post.
