The Sharks announced  Thursday the team has partnered with Tico Sports to include a Spanish language audio broadcast for the remaining home regular season and any potential playoff games. 

These additional broadcasts will begin on March 25 as the Sharks host the Detroit Red Wings.

The audio call will be heard on the Sharks + SAP Center App and the SAP setting on NBC Sports California's television broadcast, according to a release on the team's website

"Calling the action will be Bay Area resident Ambrosio Rico, who has extensive experience calling professional sports, including six seasons (2001-05) as color analyst for the Oakland Raiders Spanish broadcast."

The release also highlights a very successful night hosted by the Sharks for the past three seasons: "Los Tiburones night," which is a night celebrating the proud Hispanic heritage and the local community of San Jose.

"We're extremely excited to build off the growing success of our Spanish broadcasts from our annual Los Tiburones Nights," said Vice President of Media Relations & Broadcasting Scott Emmert.
