Tomas Hertl (knee) reportedly stands a good chance to return to the lineup on Thursday.

Hertl has been out of action since Nov. 17, but a return appears to be just around the corner. If he isn't back Thursday versus Edmonton then his first game since undergoing knee surgery could come after the All-Star break.

Zack Stortini has been dealt to the San Jose Sharks.

The Sharks landed Stortini, Buddy Robinson and a 2017 seventh-round draft pick in exchange for Tommy Wingels. Stortini has three points and 20 penalty minutes in 22 games with Binghamton of the AHL this campaign. He hasn't appeared in the AHL since 2011-12 when he played one game for the Nashville Predators.

Buddy Robinson has been traded to the San Jose Sharks in the deal that sent Tommy Wingels to Ottawa.

He has played in four games with Ottawa this season. Robinson has posted 12 points in 33 AHL matches in 2016-17.

Patrick Marleau is the first player to score four goals in a single period since Mario Lemieux in 1997.

Marleau netted his four goals in the third frame of San Jose's 5-2 win over Colorado on Monday. That was just the 12th time in NHL history that four goals were recorded in a single period. "Everything seemed to click there in the third," Marleau said. "Some really good plays from a lot of different players. Was able to finish them off." He has 16 goals and 24 points in 48 contests this season. He's also just three goals shy of the 500 milestone in his career.

Martin Jones allowed two goals on 28 shots Monday night as the Sharks defeated the Avalanche 5-2.

Jones now has four consecutive wins after giving up precisely two goals each night. In this span of games, his worst save percentage was .917, which will make him highly valued in his next start.

Patrick Marleau exploded for four goals in the third period to give the Sharks a 5-2 win over the Avalanche on Monday night.

Marleau gave the Sharks their second lead of the night at the 2:53 mark of the third, and then added two unanswered goals at 5:57 and 10:35 to complete a natural hat trick. He added a fourth marker at 16:23. This incredible performance accounted for one-fourth of his 16 goals for the season. This was not only Marleau’s first hat trick of the season, but his first multi-goal game.
Jan 23 - 11:45 PM

Tim Heed will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Avalanche.

The 25-year-old is having a terrific season in the AHL, as he's recorded 32 points in 30 games. He made his NHL debut earlier this month, but failed to record a point in that one. Barclay Goodrow and Ryan Carpenter will also watch the game from the press box.
Jan 23 - 9:07 PM

Tomas Hertl (knee) will not play on Monday night versus Colorado.

He is with the Sharks on their road trip, which is encouraging, but he isn't expected to play Tuesday either.
Jan 23 - 6:29 PM

Martin Jones will get the nod in Monday's game against Colorado.

He stopped 31 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Avalanche on Saturday. Jones has won each of his last three starts, while surrendering just two goals against each time. He has 24 victories in 40 games this season along with a 2.24 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
Jan 23 - 4:47 PM

Timo Meier (upper body) will return to the lineup on Monday night.

He has missed the last two games with an upper-body injury. Meier is projected to play on the fourth line with Tommy Wingels and Melker Karlsson.
Jan 23 - 4:42 PM

Ryan Carpenter is trying to stay in the NHL with the Sharks.

Carpenter was recalled last week as the Sharks had a slew of injuries up front. He has been playing the fourth line and has picked up a couple of points in three games since getting back into the lineup. The Sharks should get Timo Meier, Tomas Hertl and Micheal Haley in the short term and that could force the Sharks into returning him to the minors.
Jan 23 - 9:49 AM

Mikkel Boedker is playing on the second line with Logan Couture and Joonas Donskoi.

Boedker got off to a horrific start to the season but has played better with four of his six goals coming earlier in the month. He has not picked up a point in his last five games but that seems to be the norm for Boedker this season. He will lose his spot as a top-six forward once Tomas Hertl and/or Timo Meier return from injury.
Jan 22 - 9:28 AM

Timo Meier missed his second straight game Saturday with an upper body injury.

The talented forward was picked ninth overall in 2015 and has plenty of offensive upside. He has two goals and four points in 15 games but his upside as mentioned earlier is high. He is worth grabbing in all keeper leagues.
Jan 22 - 9:25 AM

David Schlemko provided the OTGWG as the San Jose Sharks managed a 3-2 overtime win against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday.

It was Schlemko's first OT game-winner in the NHL and the fourth GWG of his career. This marks his second tally and 10th point of 2016-17, breaking a seven-game pointless slump. That game featured all rare-scorers (the top scorer hit his fifth goal of the season), so Schlemko seems like an inspired choice to make the difference.
Jan 22 - 2:50 AM

Martin Jones continues to deliver at more or less the same level as his outstanding first season with the Sharks during his second campaign as their No. 1 guy.

Jones nabbed a win on Saturday as San Jose edged the Colorado Avalanche 3-2 in overtime. He's now 24-14-2 with a solid .917 save percentage and nice 2.24 GAA. It's plausible that he'll match or best 37 wins, the career-high he set last season. The Sharks took a leap of faith with Jones (he only had 34 games of experience at the NHL level before joining San Jose) and that's been looking like a wise decision.
