Dylan DeMelo will be an option for the Sharks on Sunday, as he is ready to return from a wrist injury.

He has skated in just 14 games this season, while mostly serving as the team's seventh defender, so it's uncertain if he will play against Minnesota even though he is healthy.

Dylan DeMelo will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Arizona.

Dylan DeMelo actually played in his first game of the season Wednesday.

DeMelo was a late addition to the lineup when David Schlemko fell ill just before the warmup. He played 13:26 and coach Peter DeBoer was quite impressed with the defenseman. "I thought Dylan DeMelo did an unbelievable job," DeBoer said. "To sit around for two months, and hasn't played a game since training camp. To jump in against that team and play the minutes he did and be as effective as he was is a great testament to him."
