Mikkel Boedker will be a healthy scratch for Monday night's game against the Washington Capitals.

Boedker has only seven points in 24 games played this season and he'll sit in the press box once more for the Sharks. Joining him will be fellow forwards Melker Karlsson and Ryan Carpenter.
Dec 4 - 6:40 PM

Mikkel Boedker will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Lightning.

Boedker's been a huge disappointment since joining the Sharks as a free agent two summers ago. He has just three goals and four assists in 24 games this season. Marcus Sorensen and Melker Karlsson will also be scratched in this one.
Dec 2 - 7:13 PM

Mikkel Boedker posted a goal with an assist, a plus-2 rating and a hit in Wednesday's 4-1 win against the visiting Predators.

The nine-year veteran snapped a three-game scoreless skid and a nine-game drought without a goal dating back to Oct. 7, the second game of the regular season. So far Boedker has been unable to fill the void left by the departure of Patrick Marleau in free agency.
Nov 2 - 2:13 AM

Mikkel Boedker scored the Sharks' only goal in a 4-1 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Boedker's first of the season was assisted by defensemen Brenden Dillon and Dylan DeMelo. He had 10 goals and 26 points in 81 games last year.
Oct 8 - 1:58 AM

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.
Sep 24 - 12:41 AM

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
Apr 20 - 2:22 PM

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.
