Mikkel Boedker scored a pair of goals in San Jose’s 5-4 shootout win over the Arizona Coyotes.

Boedker joined the Sharks in free agency last off-season, but he had a pretty disappointing year overall. He had just 10 goals and 26 points in 81 games in 2015-16. With Patrick Marleau no longer on the team, the Sharks could use a boost in production from Boedker.

Mikkel Boedker's first season with San Jose proved to be a disappointment.

The Sharks signed Boedker to a four-year, $16 million contract and that deal is looking very bad at the moment. Boedker went from recording 51 points between Arizona and Colorado in 2015-16 to just 10 goals and 26 points in 81 contests with San Jose this season. To make matters worse, Boedker was a healthy scratch three times in the first round. "He has the things we’re looking for: his career scoring average, his speed, [penalty killing] ability," Sharks GM Doug Wilson said. "Did he meet the expectations that he had for himself [or] that we had for him? No. Can we get that out of him? Pete [DeBoer] believes we can." We'll see if he can bounce back next season. Given his contract, San Jose has little choice but to hope that he does.

Mikkel Boedker is expected to stay in the lineup on Saturday for Game 6 against the Oilers.

He was a healthy scratch for Game 4, but came back and registered two points on Thursday night in his return.
Apr 22 - 9:03 PM

Mikkel Boedker scored and picked up a helper in the Sharks' 4-3 overtime loss in Game 5.

Boedker's return to the lineup was a successful one personally as he picked up his first points of the series in 13 minutes of ice-time. Patrick Marleau and David Schlemko scored the other goals for the Sharks who blew a 3-1 lead. Game 6 is Saturday in San Jose.
Apr 21 - 3:00 AM

Mikkel Boedker appears to be back in the lineup for Thursday's Game 5 matchup against Edmonton.

Boedker has been scratched for the last two games, but Joonas Donskoi looks like the odd-man out instead. Look for him to start on the second line with Logan Couture and Jannik Hansen

It hasn't been decided yet if Mikkel Boedker will stay in the press box for Game 4 on Tuesday night.

"Those are tough decisions. It wasn't easy," coach Pete DeBoer said. "I don't think it's been all bad. I think he was really good in Game 1. He could easily be back in there tomorrow." Boedker was on the ice longer than any other Sharks forward on Monday's off-day after he was scratched on Sunday.
Apr 17 - 5:27 PM

Mikkel Boedker has been scratched for Game 3 against the Oilers on Sunday.

He averaged just over 15 minutes per match through the first two games of the series, posting just two shots on net and taking one minor penalty.
Apr 16 - 10:05 PM

Mikkel Boedker scored his first goal in 20 games on Saturday.

It has been feast or famine for Boedker and it has mostly been famine as it was only his seventh goal of the season. He scored four goals in three games in January but has only three other goals in 57 games of action including the one on Saturday. He should not be in your lineup or anyone else's for that matter.
Feb 26 - 10:25 AM

Mikkel Boedker is playing on the second line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi.

Boedker got off to a horrific start to the season but has played better with four of his six goals coming earlier in the month. He has not picked up a point in his last five games but that seems to be the norm for Boedker this season. He will lose his spot as a top-six forward once Tomas Hertl and/or Timo Meier return from injury.
Jan 22 - 9:28 AM

Mikkel Boedker saw second line time with Logan Couture and Kevin Labanc Saturday.

The Sharks were shutout so Boedker did not hit the scoresheet but he has looked very good this past week with four goals and an assist in his previous three games. He has only six goals and 13 points this season but certainly appears to be coming out of his season long funk.
Jan 15 - 10:23 AM

Mikkel Boedker found the back of the net once in the first period and twice in the second to score his first hat trick of the season while the San Jose Sharks beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-3 Tuesday night.

Boedker’s hat trick doubled his point total for the season. He may have been on a few been on a few radar screens after scoring a goal in his latest outing against the Red Wings Saturday night. Then again, to find another goal one has to scroll all the way back to November 1st, so it was only the most intrepid players who risked starting him. Boedker’s hat trick came with only 12:17 minutes of ice, which was the third least among Sharks skaters.
Jan 10 - 11:49 PM

Mikkel Boedker scored on Saturday.

This is not a misprint. We saw him actually tip in a shot from Brent Burns. It was his first goal after a 28 game drought and he now has nine points in 39 games. If you activated him for Saturday's game, kudos. If he has been in your lineup all season, get more interested in fantasy hockey.
Jan 8 - 10:48 AM

Mikkel Boedker will tag in for Michael Haley against Detroit on Saturday.

Boedker is slated to skate on the fourth line along side Melker Karlsson and Tommy Wingels. Through 38 games so far Boedker has but eight points, and has been a disappointment to say the least.
Jan 7 - 2:06 PM

Mikkel Boedker will be scratched against the Wild on Thursday.

The 27-year-old has been a massive disappointment in San Jose, posting just eight points in 38 games thus far. A far cry from the 51 points he picked up with Arizona and Colorado.
