San Jose Barracuda

The San Jose Barracuda, a professional minor league ice hockey team in the American Hockey League (AHL), began play in the 2015–16 season as a relocation of the former Worcester Sharks AHL franchise. Originally playing at the SAP Center at San José, the team became one of two AHL teams sharing a home arena with its parent club. In 2015, the Barracuda, along with other AHL franchises, formed the AHL’s Pacific Division.

In January 2020, plans for a new 4,200-seat arena at the Sharks’ Solar4America Ice complex were approved, intended for Barracuda home games. The 2019–20 season concluded prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting the 2022–23 AHL season, the Barracuda began play at the TechCU Arena.
