The Sharks will go with Aaron Dell against Carolina on Saturday.

Through his first four games in the bigs, Dell has posted a 2-1 record with just seven goals against on 102 combined shots. That's a small sample, so caution with care.

Matthew Nieto has been scratched for five straight games.

The 24-year-old forward has earned just two assists in 13 games this campaign. He hasn't played since Nov. 26 against Anaheim.
Dec 10 - 11:51 AM

David Schlemko sat for a second straight game Friday due to a lower-body injury.

However, he believes that he should be ready to play by next week. Dylan DeMelo has been filling in during Schlemko's absence.

Joe Pavelski has been piling up points lately.

He picked up an assist on Friday night versus Anaheim to give him at least one point in 10 of the last 11 games. Pavelski's seven-game point streak ended Nov. 30, but he currently has a three-game spree. Still, he is a bit upset with himself for not burying other chances.
Dec 10 - 11:46 AM

Kevin Labanc found the back of the net for the third time this season in the Sharks' 3-2 loss to Anaheim on Friday night.

He has compiled five points in 14 NHL matches in 2016-17. Labanc logged over 15 minutes of ice time Friday for just the second time.
Dec 10 - 11:42 AM

Martin Jones stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

Down 2-0, Jones made some nice stops to keep his team in the game, including a couple of huge bad saves on Jakob Silfverberg. The Sharks were eventually able to tie the game thanks to goals from Brent Burns and Kevin Labanc but a third period Hampus Lindholm goal spoiled the party for Jones and the Sharks. Jones has turned into an elite NHL goaltender and one of the best options in goal for your fantasy teams. The loss drops his record to 13-10-1 on the season.
Dec 10 - 12:53 AM

Brent Burns scored a goal in a 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Friday.

The goal was already his 12th of the season, putting him on pace for an outstanding 36 goals this season. Burns has now moved up to 5th all-time in goals in the opening 27 games of a NHL season. If he can continue at this incredible pace, he would be the first defensemen to crack 30 goals since Mike Green did it for the Capitals during the 2008-09 season. Burns has arguably turned into the most valuable fantasy defenseman this season.
Dec 10 - 12:49 AM

Mirco Mueller and Matt Nieto will watch from the press box as their Sharks take on the Ducks on Friday night.

Mueuller's season debut is inching ever-closer, but we'll all have to wait just a bit longer. The 21-year-old has a goal and four points in 50 career NHL games.
Dec 9 - 9:13 PM

Martin Jones will face Anaheim on Friday night.

Jones has played well over his last five games, sandwiching a loss around three wins with just nine goals against. He's already 1-1 with just four goals against on 46 shots versus the Ducks this season, and has been far stingier against familiar foes overall.
Dec 9 - 6:55 PM

Mirco Mueller has been called up by the San Jose Sharks.

Mueller was summoned on Wednesday and called up on Thursday, so he's been moved a lot recently. He might just be called up for insurance purposes and consequently not play on Friday.

His time has nearly arrived, Timo Meier is "real close" to making his NHL debut.

The 20-year-old is having a great season for AHL Barracudas, having posted eight goals and 14 points in 14 games thus far. The Sharks could use a bit of youth on the squad, Meier's emergence would be a welcome sight. He should be with the big club at some point this season.
Dec 8 - 7:26 PM

David Schlemko (undisclosed) will probably miss Friday's contest.

The final decision on Schlemko's availability won't be made until Friday though. He wasn't able to play on Wednesday due to the ailment.
Dec 8 - 5:23 PM

Mirco Mueller has been sent to the minors.

San Jose summoned Mueller on Wednesday, but he's heading back to the AHL without having played in a game. The 21-year-old has a goal and four points in 50 career NHL contests.

Joe Pavelski had an assist in San Jose's 4-2 loss to Ottawa Wednesday night.

Pavelski has only been held off the scoresheet in one of his last 10 games. He has eight goals and 24 points in 26 contests in 2016-17.
Dec 8 - 11:25 AM

Brent Burns tied Wednesday night’s competition at the 6:30 minute mark of the third period, but two unanswered goals shifted to momentum to give the Ottawa Senators a 4-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks.

The defenseman Burns recorded five shots on goal in the game, which was second only to the forward Joe Pavelski. Burns has proved that the best defense is a good offence 23 times this season with his 11th goal scored Wednesday night and 12 prior assists.
