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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 5 - 9:04 PM

Mikkel Boedker was benched on Tuesday.

Boedker played only 10:34 with only 1:13 coming in the final period. Boedker has only two goals and eight points in 38 games, a far cry from the 17 goals and 51 points he accumulated last season for Arizona and Colorado. If he is still in your lineup, take up a new hobby.
Jan 4 - 10:04 AM

Mikkel Boedker has been a huge disappointment to his fantasy owners this season.

Boedker has had 51 points in two of his last three seasons but has only two goals and six points in 32 games this campaign for the Sharks. San Jose inked him to a four-year/$16 million contract in the off-season and he has been a fantasy flop ever since. If he is still in your lineup, you aren't winning your pool.

Mikkel Boedker was benched in the third period Saturday.

He has not had a good time as a Shark as he has only two goals and no assists in 22 games. He has not made his fantasy owners happy at all this season and deservedly so.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 10:07:00 AM

Mikkel Boedker is projected to play with Joe Thornton and Joe Pavelski on Tuesday night.

Joel Ward will take Boedker's place with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi, while Tomas Hertl will center the third line. Boedker has one goal in six games this season. He doesn't have a point nor a shot in his last four outings.

Mikkel Boedker will make his preseason debut Wednesday night.

He will skate alongside Tomas Hertl and Joonas Donskoi in the match. Logan Couture and Donskoi are slated to be Boedker's linemates when the regular season begins. Boedker played for Team Europe at the World Cup of Hockey.

Mikkel Boedker ended up playing in four World Cup games for Team Europe, but there was a point where it looked like he might have been better off at the Sharks' training camp.

Boedker was a healthy scratch for all three of Europe's pre-tournament warmup contests. Had he continued to sit for the rest of the tournament, then the World Cup might have actually been a net negative for him in terms of preparing for the 2016-17 campaign. "You never want to sit out and just watch the games, that wasn’t that fun. I could have been here and gotten ready with the [Sharks]," Boedker said. His opportunity with Team Europe came after Marian Gaborik suffered a foot injury. Now back with San Jose, Boedker practiced with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi.

Mikkel Boedker will draw into the lineup on Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Cup of Hockey final.

He is getting a chance to play after Marian Gaborik went down with a foot injury. The Danish winger hasn't played in any of Team Europe's games since the tournament officially began.
Tue, Sep 27, 2016 03:01:00 PM

Mikkel Boedker, Luca Sbisa, and Thomas Greiss will be scratched for Sunday's Team Europe's semi-final match against Team Sweden.

No surprises here as Europe has proven to be the tournament's Cinderella story thus far, and as we all know in hockey, it's tough to change a winning lineup.
