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.

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.

Mikkel Boedker, Luca Sbisa, and Thomas Griess will be scratched for Saturday's match with Team USA.

A surely disappointing way to begin the tournament for these three, as each come in to it with much to prove. Boedker just signed a fat new contract with San Jose, Sbisa wants to seize an opportunity to work his way up Vancouver's defensive depth chart, and Greiss is battling Jaroslav Halak in Brooklyn for the Islanders' crease as well. Alas, they'll have to wait at least another game for Team Europe.
Sep 17 - 3:14 PM

Mikkel Boedker is projected to start as a top-six forward with the Sharks.

He will likely line up alongside Logan Couture. San Jose is hoping that Boedker will be an upgrade over Patrick Marleau, Tommy Wingels, Matt Nieto and Melker Karlsson, who have occupied that spot in the past.

Mikkel Boedker said he left money on the table to play for the San Jose Sharks.

Boedker inked a four-year, $16 million contract with the Sharks on July 1. "There were teams with more money and that sort of thing, but I chose to follow my [gut] and follow what I thought was right, and that was going to San Jose and trying to live out my dream in winning a Stanley Cup," Boedker said. "I chose San Jose for a number of reasons. The obvious is that Pete is there, and the other obvious one [is] they proved this year that they can win, and they are a contender." As we've previously mentioned, Boedker and Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer did work together back when they were both part of OHL Kitchener. Boedker had 17 goals and 51 points in 80 games between Arizona and Colorado in 2015-16.

The signing of Mikkel Boedker will reunite him with his coach in the OHL, Peter DeBoer.

DeBoer coached Boedker at Kitchener of the OHL during the 2007-08 season when the Rangers last won the Memorial Cup. The Sharks love the speed of Boedker and he should cause plenty of havoc for opposing teams. The 26-year-old had 17 goals and 51 points last season but expect more next season as the Sharks offense is potent.
Jul 3 - 9:19 AM

Mikkel Boedker has signed a four-year, $16 million contract with the San Jose Sharks.

Boedker had 17 goals and 51 points in 80 games between the Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche in 2015-16. Boedker is just 26 years old, so it's not unreasonable to expect more of the same out of him, which makes this look like a pretty good contract.
Jul 1 - 5:17 PM

Mikkel Boedker hasn't ruled out returning to Colorado, according to his agent.

Boedker was acquired from Arizona as a rental before the trade deadline. "We’re going to definitely weigh all the options and make the best decision for Mikkel," said agent Jarrett Bousquet. "He liked everyone from the coaches and the players to the fans in Colorado. It’s definitely a place that’s up there on his list." The 26-year-old had 17 goals and 51 points in 80 games last season.
Jun 19 - 10:53 AM

Mikkel Boedker is expected to enter free agency on July 1.

Boedker is reportedly asking for around $5.5 million per season for five years. It was also reported in early May that there had been no negotiations between him and the Avalanche. He picked up four goals and 12 points in 18 games with Colorado after he was acquired from Arizona.
Jun 1 - 2:44 PM

Mikkel Boedker ended his season Saturday with a NHL worst minus-33 rating.

It was not a good fantasy season for Boedker because of his plus/minus rating although he did end up with 51 points including 17 goals. He was traded from Arizona at the deadline and he will be eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Apr 10 - 12:09 PM

Mikkel Boedker scored in Colorado's 4-3 loss to Nashville on Tuesday.

It was his first goal since Mar. 16, but Boedker did collect six assists during his goal drought. He has 12 points in 16 games since being acquired from Arizona.

Mikkel Boedker scored twice to lead Colorado past Vancouver on Wednesday.

Boedker was also a plus-2 in 20:13 of ice-time. He had been pressing since coming from Arizona but not this night as he was easily the best player for either team. He has 16 goals and 44 points in 69 games overall this season. Andreas Martinson scored the other goal for the Avs.
Mar 17 - 12:55 AM

Mikkel Boedker scored the first goal of his career as a member of the Avalanche, and it was pretty too.

The tally was nearly Datsyuk-ian as he deftly flipped the puck over a sprawling Roberto Luongo. The goal is his 14 overall of the season and is now up to 41 points as well.
