Jannik Hansen will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Hansen was a significant acquisition at last year's trade deadline, but he's been a flop in San Jose so far. This will be his second consecutive game in the press box. He has just one assist in seven games this season. A trade out of San Jose might just be what the doctor ordered to get him going again. Barclay Goodrow and Dylan DeMelo will also be scratched against the Bruins.

Jannik Hansen and Timo Meier will serve as healthy scratches in tonight's game against the Rangers.

Head coach Pete DeBoer is trying to send the team a message. He's clearly not happy with the lack of secondary scoring, so this is his way of shuffling things up. Dylan DeMelo will also watch from the press box on Monday night.

Jannik Hansen opened training camp on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski.

The Sharks went through eight different left wingers on the line last season. Tomas Hertl and Melker Karlsson have skated there in the past and they have had some success. Paul Gackle|of the San Jose Mercury News thinks the team should give Daniel O'Regan a look on the first unit even though he admits that the winger is probably a long shot to make the Sharks' roster out of camp.

Jannik Hansen played a part on both San Jose goals in a 3-2 loss to Edmonton on Thursday.

Hansen opened the scoring for both teams then picked up the secondary assist on Joe Pavelski's marker in the third period. Hansen has back-to-back games with the same contribution of two points. He has five points in 10 games as a member of the Sharks.

Jannik Hansen (upper body) said he's returning to the Sharks' lineup on Friday.

Hansen was originally called a game-time decision. It's not clear what the lines will be for San Jose, but it looks like Timo Meier will probably be scratched to make room for Hansen.
Mar 24 - 1:03 PM

Jannik Hansen (upper body) is regarded as a game-time decision.

Hansen has missed the Sharks' last two games. He has six goals and 14 points in 34 contests this season.
Mar 24 - 11:43 AM

Jannik Hansen is not out for warmups, indicating he will miss Monday's matchup with the Dallas Stars.

Hansen made the trip to Dallas but won't suit up due to his injury. He only has one point in six games with the Sharks but he was playing well alongside Thornton and Pavelski before succumbing to his injury.
Mar 20 - 8:24 PM

Jannik Hansen (upper body) is doubtful to play Monday.

The Sharks had an optional skate in the morning and Hansen did not participate. He suffered an upper-body injury on Saturday against Anaheim. Hansen has one assist in six games with San Jose.
Mar 20 - 12:49 PM

Despite suffering an upper body injury on Saturday, Jannik Hansen did travel with the Sharks to Dallas for Monday's game.

Which doesn't necessarily mean he'll play. Hansen could still be too sore to enter the lineup, but it does indicate that he won't be out for long. Consider the veteran winger day-to-day, for now.
Mar 19 - 4:52 PM

Jannik Hansen was hurt in the third period Saturday and did not return.

Hansen was apparently clipped in the head by Brandon Montour and was unable to return. Coach Peter DeBoer had no update after the game but Joe Pavelski commented. "I think [Hansen] said he got a stick in the head, or something like that. I don’t really know for sure," Pavelski said. Hansen has six goals and 14 points in 34 games but expect more production from him in the playoffs.
Mar 19 - 6:52 AM

Jannik Hansen has meshed well with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski on the top line since being acquired from Vancouver.

While Hansen has been limited to an assist in three games, the unit has performed well offensively while he's been with it. That trio is likely going to stick together, but unfortunately Hansen isn't the type of player that's likely to benefit a lot from it in terms of his own offensive production.
Mar 16 - 9:14 AM

Jannik Hansen will play in his first game with the Sharks Thursday night.

He will skate on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski. Hansen's presence in the lineup will make Marcus Sorensen a healthy scratch.
Mar 9 - 6:13 PM

Jannik Hansen participated in Wednesday's practice.

San Jose acquired Hansen from Vancouver at the trade deadline, but he wasn't able to immediately join the team due to work visa issues. Now that those are resolved, he should play on Thursday. He's projected to be on the top line with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski based on the skate.
Mar 8 - 6:26 PM

Jannik Hansen is expected to be in the lineup for his San Jose debut on Thursday.

Coach Pete DeBoer said Hansen is "in the clear" with his work visa. Hansen has six goals and 13 points in 28 games this season.
