Tyler Kennedy has a lot to prove to the San Jose Sharks after a terrible 2013-14 season.
Kennedy is headed into the second season of a two-year/$4.7 million contract he signed after six years in Pittsburgh where he was always in double digits in goals, save for the lockout season of 2013, including a 21 goal effort in 2010-11. But he only had four goals and 17 points in 67 games last season, with a team-worst minus-10 rating. He has no where to go but up, but since he was a healthy scratch for all seven playoff games against the Kings, that is also an option for the Sharks. Sep 6 - 8:16 AM

Tyler Kennedy takes being a healthy scratch on Tuesday as a sign that he needs to be better defensively.

"I kind of got away from it for a couple games there, not following the systems," Kennedy said. "I don't think it's anything about work ethic or skating or nothing like that, I think I'm doing that well. I think just getting into the system and playing the system a little bit better." He has three goals and 11 points in 33 games this season. Sharks coach Todd McLellan wouldn't reveal whether or not Kennedy would play on Thursday.

Tyler Kennedy knows he has to pick up his game.

Kennedy was acquired from the Penguins for a second-round pick at the draft, but he has only one goal and four assists while playing on a line with Logan Couture and Patrick Marleau. "I think I’ve got to pick it up a little bit. I want to be better," Kennedy said. Sharks coach Todd McLellan mixed up the lines and now has Kennedy with Joe Thornton and Tomas Hertl. "I think he’s provided us with a burst of speed, some good defensive play. They’ve had some tough assignments on a nightly basis," McLellan said. "He’s shot the puck a lot, and got it back. I’ve liked how he fit in. I think he’s a good piece for our team."
