Mirco Mueller should get back in the San Jose lineup this weekend.

The Sharks play twice and while Mueller and Barclay Goodrow have sat out the last three games as healthy scratches, coach Todd McLellan does not want them to languish in the press box. "It's important that they stay in the mix and they stay on top of their game," McLellan said. "The practice time has been good for them. Coaches, when you win, you like to keep kind of the same group together for a while. They haven't played, but it's no fault of their own. Just the group has had some success." Mueller has three points in 21 games this season.

Mirco Mueller has been a healthy scratch the last three games, Coach McLellan confirmed.

Just in case you were wondering why the rookie defender hadn't been playing lately. He may have just three points on the season, but when he has played, 21 games thus far, he's played on average 17:27.

There's a good chance young San Jose Sharks defenseman Marco Mueller might replace Jason Demers in the lineup this afternoon, according to CSNBayArea.com.

Mueller, 19, has one assist in the five games he's played (last appearing on Oct. 19). Demers had an assist in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jackets, giving him three overall in 2014-15.

Mirco Mueller has been a healthy scratch the last two games.

The young blueliner has only one assist in five games and he likely will need to go back to Everett of the WHL especially before he plays ten games in the NHL and burns a year of his contract. Stay tuned.

The New York Rangers' Carl Hagelin scored the opening goal in Sunday's game against San Jose due to a misstep by Mirco Mueller.

Mueller was slow to clear the puck, which gave Hagelin the opportunity to break the scoreless tie at 13:01 of the second period. The Rangers went on to earn a 4-0 victory. "That was my mistake," Mueller said in regards to the Hagelin goal. "I think I've got to be harder on those pucks. I kind of misread it. I thought the puck was going to stop a little closer to (goaltender) Alex (Stalock) and he'd be able to cover it. That was my mistake." It was just Mueller's fifth NHL game, so it's completely understandable that he's still making adjustments. He'll have good and bad games, but he's got a lot of upside.

Mirco Mueller was a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

Sharks coach Todd McLellan downplayed the decision as a chance to allow Mueller observe an NHL game from the press box. "They play games in the NHL before they even watch them, and sometimes it's good to see it from up above and see what might be available and what might not," McLellan said. "He's still 19, and we're still going to develop him slowly and try to do it the right way." Mueller doesn't have a ton of offensive upside and we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues.

Mirco Mueller played 23:16 minutes Saturday.

He saw the second most ice time on the Sharks as only Brent Burns was on the ice more. Mueller is battling for the final spot on the blueline and his performance last night may have done the trick. Mueller was selected with the 18th overall pick in 2013. Mueller makes a great breakout pass and is quite smart on the ice as well as being a very good playmaker so he could be worth selecting in dynasty pools.

Mirco Mueller is in a battle for the final spot on the San Jose blueline.

This is the first training camp for Mueller who was selected in the first round, 18th overall in 2013, but missed camp last season due to a wonky back. Mueller is in a battle with Matt Tennyson, Taylor Doherty and Taylor Fedun for the spot but if he is going to spend time on the bench or in the press box, a return to junior hockey would be best for his development. "I saw a player that was excited to be here, a player that looked somewhat comfortable," coach Todd McLellan said of Mueller. "His play going forward will dictate where he fits."
Sep 21 - 9:56 AM

Mirco Mueller is going into training camp 10-to-12 pounds heavier than he was at the end of the 2013-14 campaign.

Mueller is now listed as 6-foot-3, 205 pounds. He's hoping that he'll be able to make the Sharks' opening game roster after bulking up over the summer and he's not a bad bet to do just that.

Defenseman Mirco Mueller, at 19, may well make the San Jose Sharks next season.

Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has gone on record as saying he would like his team to be more youthful next season and NHL.com suggests "Mueller could have the best chance to break through and make the team out of training camp." The Sharks traded veteran defensemen Dan Boyle and Brad Stuart. Although Brent Burns is returning to defense after spending last season as a forward, and veteran Scott Hannan re-signed, there are spots to be won on defense, and Wilson has said Mueller is among the top young candidates. The Sharks chose Mueller with the 18th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft. "He's a really solid player," Sharks forward Matt Nieto said of Mueller. "He's a really smooth player who makes all the right decisions. . . He's got a good defensive stick. I think he's got a really good chance of making the team out of camp. . .He's got a lot of skills. He can handle the puck really well. He's got a good shot."

Mirco Mueller will join the Worcester Sharks of the AHL now that his WHL season is over.

He had five goals and 27 points in 60 games for Everett this year. Mueller was the 18th overall pick in the 2013 draft. The 19-year-old defenseman will either play for San Jose or be back in the WHL next campaign because he isn't eligible to start the season in the minors.
Mar 31 - 6:47 PM

Mirco Mueller, the Sharks first pick, 18th overall in the 2013 Draft, was sent back to Everett of the WHL.

Mueller signed an entry level contract before getting sent down. The Swiss-born Mueller is a tremendously smart and quick defenseman with the sound fundamentals who will definitely make an impact in a few years with the Sharks. He had 31 points in 63 games last season. Look for him to build on those numbers this season.

The San Jose Sharks inked defensive prospect Mirco Mueller to an entry-level contract on Sunday.

The Swiss-born blueliner was drafted 18th overall in 2013. He's listed as six-foot-three, 195 lbs., so he could end up making an impression on the organization in the not-too-distant future.

San Jose Sharks 2013 first-rounder (18th overall) Mirco Mueller practiced with his new team for the first time on Sunday.

Mueller was suffering from a minor back injury that was previously undisclosed. "Pretty special. It was my first practice with the pros," Mueller said. "The first thing I noticed is they practice really hard and really fast. It was a really high pace today."
