Kevin Labanc is back up with the San Jose Sharks.

Logan Couture is listed as questionable for Wednesday night's game, so Labanc skated with the big club on Tuesday. Labanc has chipped in four points in 12 games with the Sharks this year.

Logan Couture is questionable for Wednesday's game after he had a screw removed from his ankle over the weekend.

He wasn't on the ice Tuesday because his ankle was too irritated to put on his skate, but he was walking around fine. Couture still has five screws in place after he had surgery on his ankle last season. He believes that he will be available to play against Ottawa. A decision will likely come after the morning skate.

Chris Tierney gained confidence from San Jose's 2016 playoff run.

Tierney was in his second NHL campaign at the time, but scored a solid four goals and nine points in 24 postseason contests. "I thought I was going to be a little more nervous going into the playoffs than I was, but once you get playing it kind of feels like you’re just playing another game. … I think I just got more confident every series that I could go up against [Anze] Kopitar, or [Ryan] Johansen, or [Alex] Steen, [Jori] Lehtera or [Vladimir] Tarasenko," he said. After recording 20 points in the 2015-16 regular season, he has two goals and eight points in 25 games this season.

Ryan Carpenter was demoted to AHL San Jose on Saturday.

The 25-year-old has a goal in three games with the Sharks this season. He has seven points in 12 games with the Barracudas as well.

Kevin Labanc was sent back to AHL San Jose on Saturday.

The 20-year-old has picked up four points in 12 games with the Sharks this season, as well as 10 points in six games with the Barracudas. Mighty impressive for one's first taste of professional hockey.
Dec 3 - 5:33 PM

Brent Burns scored a goal in the Sharks' 2-1 win over Montreal on Friday.

Burns has found the back of the net in four of his last seven games. He has 10 goals and 22 points in 25 contests in 2016-17.
Dec 3 - 11:02 AM

Joe Thornton assisted on both of San Jose's goals on Friday.

Thornton now has 1,354 career points, giving him sole possession of 25th place on the all-time list ahead of Brendan Shanahan. Thornton's gotten that far through his ability to perform like a star player deep into his 30s. He's reached the 60-point mark in 15 campaigns and the 70-point milestone in 12 seasons.
Dec 3 - 11:00 AM

Tommy Wingels (undisclosed) returned to action on Friday December 2.

Wingels was sidelined for three straight games. He recorded a shot on goal and six hits in 10:29 minutes of ice time in his return.
Dec 3 - 3:03 AM

Martin Jones allowed one goal on 32 shots in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

The greatest save of the game occurred midway through the first period when he absolutely robbed Alex Galchenyuk of a goal with his glove. Jones then lost his shutout bid with less than two minutes remaining in the game when Artturi Lehkonen put the puck passed him on a powerplay. Jones has now won five of his last six starts, giving up one goal or less in each of those wins. The win improves his record to 13-8-1, with a 1.99 goals against average and a .924 save percentage.
Dec 3 - 1:27 AM

Joe Pavelski scored a goal and recorded an assist in a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

Pavelski did well to force the Habs to turnover the puck in their own end before tipping home a Joe Thornton pass into the net. The former 7th round pick has nine points in his last nine games and is well on his way to another great season. He is up to 23 points in 25 games and will be looking to eclipse his career high of 79 points set during the 2013-14 season.
Dec 3 - 1:10 AM

Dylan DeMelo won't play against Montreal on Friday night.

Through the first 47 sporadic NHL games of his career, the 23-year-old has posted just three goals and five points. Unfortunately, he's made it into only a pair of games for the Sharks this season.
Dec 2 - 9:33 PM

Matt Nieto will sit out Friday's match against Montreal.

Unfortunate for the struggling young veteran as he picked up both of his season's points over the last five games, giving him two helpers in 13 games this season.
Dec 2 - 9:32 PM

Martin Jones will take on Montreal on Friday.

Jones has been stellar lately, winning four of his last five with a shutout and five goals against over that span. His November was back up to the stature we've become familiar with of him, posting a 7-5-1 with a pair of shutouts, .924 save percentage and a 1.96 GAA.

Logan Couture scored two goals and had an assist in Wednesday night’s 4-1 victory of the San Jose Sharks over the LA Kings.

Couture provided an assist on the first goal of the night at the 3:32 minute mark of the first and scored his own at 19:05. He padded his stat with an empty net goal at the 18:43 minute mark of the third in what might have been a simple attempt to clear the puck. Couture has scored in seven of his last 11 games, but this is the first time in 2016 that he scored two goals in one game.
Dec 1 - 1:31 AM

Martin Jones stopped 25 shots and allowed one goal in Wednesday night’s 4-1 victory over the LA Kings.

The Sharks and Kings entered the contest with one win separating them. The Sharks’ 13-9-1 record was narrowly better than the Kings’ 12-9-1 but the game got out of hand in the first with three goals scored by the Sharks. Both goalies had relatively easy nights with Jones facing only 27 shots and Peter Budaj facing 23. Jones has won four of his last five games through superior netminding. In those wins, he has not given up more than one goal per game.
