The San Jose Barracuda took a creative direction with the 2024 AHL All-Star logo. Within the logo you will first notice the corrugated fin appearance similar to the San Jose Sharks’ iconic “swimming fin” logo. The creation of the Barracuda fin builds a similar but separate identity for the Barracuda. Within the logo you will also find both waves and palm trees symbolizing the iconic scenery of California and the area of San Jose. The three stars represent the three professional hockey All-Star events that have been hosted in the area: the 1997 and 2019 NHL All-Star Games hosted by the Sharks, and the upcoming 2024 AHL event.
The 2024 AHL All-Star Classic in San Jose will feature the top young talent in the American Hockey League: since 1995, more than 94 percent of All-Star Classic participants have gone on to compete in the National Hockey League, including Cam Atkinson, Drake Batherson, Patrice Bergeron, Jordan Binnington, Jack Campbell, John Carlson, Logan Couture, Thatcher Demko, Connor Hellebuyck, Tristan Jarry, Kaapo Kahkonen, Jordan Kyrou, Jonathan Marchessault, Jacob Markstrom, Brandon Montour, William Nylander, Kyle Palmieri, Mikko Rantanen, Dylan Strome, Linus Ullmark, Vitek Vanecek and Mats Zuccarello.
