Jason Demers returned to action against Columbus Friday night.

He had missed the Sharks' last three games with a groin muscle pull. Demers looked good in San Jose's 3-2 win Friday as he registered an assist and took three shots on goal in 20:46 of ice time. The Sharks don't play again until after the Olympic break so you have plenty of time to activate him.
Feb 8 - 2:27 AM

Demers has missed three straight games. He seemed confident that he would play, but Sharks coach Todd McLellan wouldn't commit to that.

Jason Demers (groin) was on the ice Tuesday.

Feb 4 - 5:12 PM

Jason Demers (lower body) will not play on Monday.

Demers has 24 points in 52 games so he makes a good fourth defenseman in deeper pools. This will be the second straight game that Demers has missed. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Feb 3 - 9:50 AM

Jason Demers was a late scratch on Saturday with a lower body injury.

Demers is having a good season with three goals and 24 points in 52 games as he is also a plus-six for the Sharks. Consider him day-to-day. He makes a nice 4-5 defenseman in deeper pools when healthy.
Feb 2 - 9:27 AM

Jason Demers scored his first goal of the season Saturday.

Demers has a bit of fantasy value in deep leagues as he now has 13 points in 33 games with a plus-three rating and 18 penalty minutes. Just an FYI in case he is on your roster.

Jason Demers has gone five straight games without recording a point.

Demers has 12 assists in 32 contests in 2013-14. He's a solid defenseman for the Sharks, but he doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues and we don't expect that to change anytime soon.

Jason Demers has signed a one-year deal with the San Jose Sharks.

He produced three points in 22 games during an injury-plagued season. Demers missed time with wrist, head and ankle ailments, but it didn't sour the Sharks on his potential. "Jason is a highly competitive puck moving defenseman that creates offense from the back end," GM Doug Wilson said in a statement. "We're looking forward to seeing him come back healthy and continue his growth with us."

Jason Demers will be in need of a new contract this summer.

He is eligible for restricted free agency and will probably stay with the Sharks on a short-term deal as a depth blueliner. Demers skated in just 22 games during the lockout-shortened season and he never played more than seven straight games, as he was forced out out as a healthy scratch or due to injury.

San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan said he's weighing a lineup with Jason Demers inserted as a seventh defenseman for Tuesday's game 4.

Demers has been sidelined since he suffered a sprained left ankle on April 18. He said Monday he's available to return to the lineup, which puts the decision squarely on McLellan's shoulders. Demers did skate at forward at times Monday and could help McLellan balance out both sides of the Sharks' banged-up equation.
Tue, May 21, 2013 02:59:00 PM

Jason Demers, who suffered a sprained left ankle on April 18, said he is available to return to San Jose's lineup.

The Sharks may use him up front and dress seven defensemen in Game 4. "I'll go in wherever they want me to right now," said Demers, who practiced at forward and on defense Monday. The team is dealing with injuries to Adam Burish and Martin Havlat in addition to Raffi Torres' second-round suspension, which may place Demers at forward on Tuesday night.
