The Sharks have re-assigned Rudolfs Balcers to the AHL.

Balcers has some offensive potential, but he's not really ready to contribute at the NHL level. He will be back.

The San Jose Sharks have been out hit by their opponents in 20 consecutive games.

That's quite a stat. During that span the team has a 10-7-3 record, so it is hard to know if being out muscled has impacted the Sharks' overall results. That said, if I were a San Jose fan, I'd be a tad concerned that might team might not measure up for a playoff run.

Brent Burns only ended up playing part of Thursday's game as a forward.

Burns took shifts in the first period as a forward, but he was moved back to the blueliner after that. The shift back to his natural position served him well as Burns went on to score a goal and register an assist. With that, Burns has reached the 50-point milestone for a fourth straight campaign.
Feb 16 - 11:01 AM

Marcus Sorensen was called up from the minors for Thursday's game against Vancouver.

Sorensen logged just 8:52 of ice time, but scored his fourth goal of the season. This marked his first NHL appearance since Jan. 31 and his 19th of the year.

Brent Burns scored his 10th of the season in a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Burns was one of three players to register a goal and an assist against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. San Jose also got goals from Mikkel Boedker, Chris Tierney, and Marcus Sorensen in the win. Burns now has 10 goals and 50 points in 58 games this season.

Martin Jones made 43 saves on 44 shots in a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

Jones has had one other 43-save performance this season, it occurred Jan. 31 against the Detroit Red Wings in a shootout loss. Tonight's effort against Vancouver, however, was in a winning effort. Jones' record improves to 17-15-5 with a 2.56 GAA and a .915 save percentage.
Feb 16 - 1:54 AM

Martin Jones will get the start in Thursday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

He has a 16-15-5 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage this season. Jones has dropped three of his last four games.
Feb 15 - 6:33 PM

Tomas Hertl (undisclosed) is regarded as unlikely to play on Thursday.

Hertl left Tuesday's game after crashing into the boards in the first period. Although Hertl is doubtful for Thursday's contest, Sharks coach Peter DeBoer noted that his injury "isn’t as serious as it probably could have been." With that in mind, consider Hertl day-to-day.
Feb 15 - 5:49 AM

Brent Burns could see more time at forward for the Sharks.

Burns logged some time up front after Tomas Hertl was injured Tuesday night. He may get additional minutes at forward if Hertl remains sidelined.

Tomas Hertl left Tuesday's game against Arizona after he crashed into the boards.

Hertl logged just 7:16 of ice time in the contest and he was not able to return. Brent Burns moved up to play at forward for some of the match, which was an interesting development.
Feb 14 - 12:00 PM

Mikkel Boedker picked up an even-strength goal midway through the first period of Tuesday's 2-1 victory against the Arizona Coyotes, his former team.

Boedker has scored goals in each of his past two outings against the Coyotes, and he has a three-game point streak against his former employer. Unfortunately for Boedker and his fantasy owners, he cannot play the Coyotes more, and he doesn't do very much against anyone else. Overall he has just eight goals and 18 points with a minus-2 rating this season. That makes him useful only in the very deepest of fantasy pools until further notice.
Feb 14 - 2:57 AM

Martin Jones allowed just two goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss against the visiting Coyotes.

Jones and the Sharks were heavily favored at home against the visitors, and Arizona lost Scott Wedgewood to a head injury early in the third period, thrusting a cold Antti Raanta into the crease. However, the offense could not generate anything outside of a lone Mikkel Boedker goal midway through the first period, saddling Jones with the loss.
Feb 14 - 2:54 AM

Brandon Mashinter has been called up by San Jose.

Mashinter has seven goals and 18 points in 41 games with San Jose's AHL affiliate this year. The Sharks also brought up Tim Heed, who has sat often as a healthy scratch lately.

Martin Jones will be in goal for Tuesday's match against Arizona.

Jones stopped 25 shots in a 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim on Sunday. He has a 16-14-5 record this season with a 2.61 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 37 previous starts.
Feb 13 - 3:54 PM

Timo Meier's 14th goal of the season Sunday sent the Sharks into overtime.

Meier scored with less than a minute to go and the Sharks net empty. He has been a stud of late with 12 goals in his last 31 games and is showing why the Sharks selected him ninth overall in the 2015 Draft. He is only 21 and one of the Sharks building blocks of the future.
