Coach Peter DeBoer will forego any lineup changes for Friday's Game 1 against Nashville.

Which means that Dainius Zubrus will be joined by Micheal Haley, Matt Tennyson and Dylan DeMelo once again.
Apr 29 - 7:24 PM

Dainius Zubrus, Micheal Haley, and Dylan DeMelo will each be scratched for Game 5 against the Kings on Friday night.

Neither of these three have made their way into the lineup this postseason just yet, but with the Sharks on the verge of moving on to the second round, there will opportunities.
Apr 22 - 8:04 PM

Dainius Zubrus, Micheal Haley, and Dylan DeMelo will each be scratched for Game 1 against the Kings on Thursday night.

Zubrus turned in a quality season considering he signed during the season, and is 37-years old. He posted seven points and 68 hits in 50 games playing primarily as a supportive fourth line role.
Apr 14 - 9:44 PM

Dainius Zubrus will play in Saturday's regular season finale.

Thus will be the only lineup change as well. The wily veteran has performed admirably for the Sharks since being signed mid-season. He's posted seven points with 67 hits while averaging 11: 36 of ice time over 49 games.

Dainius Zubrus will miss Thursday's contest for a minor undisclosed injury.

It sounds like this is as much of a game off for Zubrus as it is a response to an ailment. Given that the playoffs are just around the corner, that's not too surprising. Chris Tierney, who was out Tuesday for a minor ailment of his own, will draw into the lineup.
Apr 7 - 2:38 PM

Dainius Zubrus could return to the San Jose lineup on Saturday.

Zubrus would replace Joonas Donskoi in the lineup and play on the fourth unit. He sat out last game as a healthy scratch and has not had a point in his last 11 games and only one assist in his last 19. Don't expect anything special on Saturday from the veteran forward.
Mar 26 - 10:27 AM

Dainius Zubrus will get back into the lineup Tuesday.

He was sidelined with an upper-body injury, but feels ready to return now. "I think it will take a little bit of time to heal still, but I've been feeling good and I'll be ready to go tonight," said Zubrus, who will replace Mike Brown on the fourth line.
Jan 26 - 4:12 PM

Coach Todd McLellan will forego lineup changes for Sunday's match with the Kings.

Which means that Dainius Zubrus and Matt Tennyson will each be scratched. Which is just as well for fantasy purposes, as neither have accumulated much value.
Jan 24 - 1:54 PM
