Rendering shows hockey rink at Levi’s Stadium for Sharks game

What does Levi’s Stadium — home of the five-time Super Bowl champion 49ers — look like with a hockey rink in the middle of it?

A giant Shark Tank.

With the refrigeration truck arriving in Santa Clara on Monday in preparation for the Stadium Series game between the Sharks and the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 21, the NHL unveiled a rendering Thursday of what the stadium will look like on game day.

The league says the design will reflect some of the topography of Northern California, although the features that stand out in the rendering are two bodies of water with shark fins sticking out. One of the bodies of water also has a giant puck with the Sharks’ logo.

It will be the second Stadium Series game the NHL has held in California. Last season, the Kings and Anaheim Ducks played at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, with the atmosphere as rollicking as you might expect for a Hollywood party.

A crowd of 69,000 is expect to fill Levi’s Stadium, which would crush the 54,099 that watched the Kings-Ducks game at Dodger Stadium. That Kings-Ducks game had the most fans for a hockey game west of the Mississippi River.

Tickets are still available, mainly through resellers. On StubHub, tickets were going for as low as $92 for a fourth-deck seat in Section 422, while a suite seat in Tier 3 is going for $21,608.
