Mirco Mueller and Daniil Tarasov will be healthy scratches for the Sharks on Saturday night against the Blackhawks.

While there may be a bright future ahead of these two youngsters, their talents have yet to blossom for the Sharks, let alone your fantasy squad.

Mirco Mueller (upper body) has been loaned to AHL Worcester on a conditioning assignment.

Mirco Mueller was placed on injured reserve Saturday, a move that cleared a spot for Joe Thornton to return as well.

The upper body injury apparently stems from his time with Switzerland in the World Junior tournament two weeks ago. Mueller has not played for the Sharks since Dec. 11th. He has accumulated three points, eight penalty minutes, 29 hits, and 38 blocks through 24 games this season.

Mirco Mueller will be a healthy scratch agaist the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

There's little doubt that Mueller will have a fine career, but he has not blossomed just yet. Invest in him if you're in a long-term dynasty league, otherwise wait until the talents emerge.

Mirco Mueller has been loaned to Team Switzerland for the World Juniors.

Mueller has spent six of San Jose's last nine games in the press box. This will give him a chance to get plenty of minutes against the world's top talent in his age bracket.

If Marc-Edouard Vlasic can play on Saturday - which seems likely - Mirco Mueller is expected to sit out against the Nashville Predators.

Mueller, the 18th pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, has three points in 24 games as part of a rookie campaign. He's averaging a respectable 17:10 TOI per game.

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

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.
