Timo Meier is still sidelined with strep throat.

Meier has missed four straight days of training camp now and he won't participate in Friday's preseason game. He's still a possibility for Sunday's exhibition contest though. Sharks coach Pete DeBoer felt it was too early to say that Meier's chances of making the team were being hurt by his absence. "If he’s back skating (Thursday) and he ends up playing some games here, I’m not worried about that," DeBoer said. "If we get to the middle or the end of next week and he’s still not participating, then you might start thinking about those things."

Brent Burns and the Sharks aren't close to an extension yet, according to TSN and ESPN hockey insider Pierre LeBrun.

Burns can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2016-17 season and he will probably mull over his options before making a decision. The Sharks expressed their interest in keeping him in the fold early in the off-season and there have been some talks, but nothing is believed to be imminent.

Wingels was playing on a line with Chris Tierney and Nikolay Goldobin. It one of the first steps in Wingels' comeback attempt after he was limited to seven goals and 18 points in 68 games last season. "It could have been a lot better, and it starts with me and not producing and playing the way I want to play," Wingels said. "But it’s a new year, and with a new year comes a new opportunity to show that you can be better."

Mantas Armalis gave up one goal with teammate Troy Grosenick letting one other slip past in Tuesday night’s 3-2 victory for the San Jose Sharks over the Vancouver Canucks.

Armalis comes to the Sharks from Sweden where he had a 0.500 record for the Stockholm Djurgardens club in 2015/2016. He began his career with them as part of the under-16 squad in 2007/2008. Grosenick played twice for the Sharks last year, scoring one win and one loss with a save percentage of 0.948.

Kevin Labanc scored the game winning goal 1:05 minutes into overtime Tuesday night in the San Jose Sharks 3-2 victory over the Vancouver Canucks.

This was Labanc’s opportunity to showcase his talent for the Sharks. In 2015/2016 he played 65 games with the OHL’s Barrie Colts and earned 39 goals with 88 assists. The Sharks other goals went to Barclay Goodrow in the second period and Tommy Wingels in the third. The Sharks are now 1-0 in preseason play.

Joe Pavelski took part in Tuesday's morning skate after returning from the World Cup of Hockey.

He enjoyed the experience despite Team USA's disappointing showing. However, San Jose's Stanley Cup Final loss to Pittsburgh still lingers on his mind. "I don't know if you ever get over it," he said. "It still is with you. But, you try to learn from it. ... It's a new season. You definitely owe it to your teammates to be ready, owe it to the new guys that came in to be as good as you were the previous year and try to get better." Pavelski is expected to be eased back after a short summer to prepare for the tournament.

Mikkel Boedker will draw into the lineup on Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Cup of Hockey final.

He is getting a chance to play after Marian Gaborik went down with a foot injury. The Danish winger hasn't played in any of Team Europe's games since the tournament officially began.

Timo Meier won't participate in Tuesday's exhibition contest as he continues to battle strep throat.

Meier has also missed two straight days of practice as a result of the illness. He had 34 goals and 87 points in 52 QMJHL contests in 2015-16.

Marcus Sorensen has been quite impressive at training camp thus far.

The six year Swedish pro is looking to crack the San Jose lineup and with continued performances like this past week, it will be hard for the Sharks to keep him off the roster. "He’s impressive," coach Pete DeBoer said. "He’s got a lot of speed, and he backs people off. He looks good. We’ve got six exhibition games and this is just the start, but there’s a lot of guys that look good." Sorensen had 15 goals and 34 points last season and has been a force with Tommy Wingels and Chris Tierney.

Timo Meier has missed practice as he is dealing with strep throat.

It's not considered too bad as Meier is expected to return to camp on Monday. He should start the season in the minors as he played in the QMJHL last season, scoring 87 points. He is one of the Sharks brightest prospects and should make the Sharks at some point this season. Draft him in keeper leagues at this time.
Sep 26 - 9:51 AM

Mikkel Boedker, Luca Sbisa, and Thomas Greiss will be scratched for Sunday's Team Europe's semi-final match against Team Sweden.

No surprises here as Europe has proven to be the tournament's Cinderella story thus far, and as we all know in hockey, it's tough to change a winning lineup.

It looks like Aaron Dell has the inside edge on the rest of the field for the backup job in San Jose.

Dell saw some time on the Sharks bench last season and was returned to the Barracuda of the AHL when they picked up James Reimer to backup Martin Jones. Reimer left the team for Florida as a UFA in the off-season and he has passed by Troy Grosenick and looks to be ahead of Mantas Armalis. Dell will likely get some AHL time to keep him sharp as Jones figures to see the vast majority of the net for San Jose this season.

David Schlemko was paired up with Brenden Dillon during Friday's practice.

These early arrangements have to be taken with a grain of salt, but it's entirely feasible that Schlemko and Dillon will begin the season together on the Sharks' third pairing. Schlemko inked a four-year, $8.4 million deal with San Jose over the summer.
